Speaker (Sandra O’Donnell), fellowship and workshops.
Sat., May 16, 2015 from 10am-Noon at The Cove in Rancho Bernardo (The Church at Rancho Bernardo). $25/person.
52 Sundays: An Exploration of Christianity in America, Sandra’s current project, blends ethnography with history and a smattering of theology to provide readers with an entertaining, enlightening, and evocative look at church going in America. Every Sunday, for a year, Sandra visited churches all over America. Her travels took her from Massachusetts to California and from the deep South to New York City and many places in between. The churches she selected represent the broadest possible Christian experience. The goal of 52 Sundays is to open an informed and engaged dialogue about Christianity in America. The book is a work of creative non-fiction aimed at a wide audience, both the 125 million Americans who attend church each-and-every Sunday and those who simply want to know more about America’s religious origins and diversity. It will be published in 2016.
Sandra studied with Lee Gutkind, “the godfather of creative non-fiction” and Stephen Pyne, the prolific author of books about fire, ice, and space exploration while working on her Ph.D. Over the past twenty years she has attended a number of writing retreats, workshops, and conferences. She teaches workshops on writing and creative non-fiction that combine on Gutkind’s process, Pyne’s methods, and her own writing experience. Her workshops, “Project 52: Your Book this Year” are offered throughout the year.
