Narrative Magazine honored esteemed authors alongside the Bay Area’s literary up-and-comers at its inspiring Narrative Voices of a New Generation event, held at Menlo Park’s beautiful Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club. Acclaimed journalist and best-selling author Susan Orlean discussed her latest mystery, The Library Book, with the magazine’s founder, Carol Edgarian, in front of the crowd. Makee Anderson, Castilleja School senior and winner of Narrative’s “Tell Me a Story” contest, also captured the audience with her moving speech. Narrative Voices of a New Generation guests raised funds for the organization’s Narrative in the Schools program, which aims to support students and teachers worldwide. Among those spotted at the event: Katie Dickson, Rebecca Sherhouse, Sally Edsall, Libby Hulsey, Michele Kirsch, Liz Weingart, Ellen Drew, Helen Lin-Murphy and Catherine and Tobias Wolff.
