Novelist and poet ROSALIND BRACKENBURY returns to William & Mary this fall as the 2012 Donaldson Writer in Residence.

Brackenbury is English and lives in Key West with her American husband, Allen Meece. She's the author of 11 novels and five collections of poetry, most recently Becoming George Sand, a novel published in 2011 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and The Joy Of the Nearly Old, a collection of poems published this year by Hanging Loose Press.

Her fiction has been translated into Italian and Dutch, and her earlier collection of poems, Yellow Swing, into French. Annie Dillard praised her last novel as "a wonderful book -- filled with wisdom, poetry, and imagery so brilliant I wish I could steal it. This is a treasure!"

She has taught writing workshops for many years and has also been a journalist and a deck hand on a schooner.

This program is free and open to the public, thanks to Scott and Vivian Donaldson and to the Patrick Hayes Writers Series.
