Literature of Love and Loss: Lamenting the Dead, Tara Kelly, co-sponsored by Noble Horizons, Sunday September 14, 2014, 4:00 p.m. To write about love, loss, death and dying is to take on big subjects; they are massive in scope, weighty in emotion, and elusive to define. Tara Kelly explores this particular niche in the nonfiction writing of the grief memoir. She considers the works of Joan Didion, Donald Hall, C.S. Lewis, Julian Barnes, Jamaica Kincaid, and others. Tara Kelly lives in Lakeville, Connecticut. She recently earned her MFA in Literature at Bennington College. She is writing a memoir about her ex-husband, a larger than life character and local restaurateur, who after being diagnosed with liver cancer, returned to her home to spend his last four days with her and their children.
