Join us in welcoming author, editor, and poet Gayle Brandeis! She'll be reading from her new memoir, The Art of Misdiagnosis, a wrenching memoir of her complicated family history and her mother's suicide.
Gayle currently teaches in the low residency MFA programs at Antioch University Los Angeles and Sierra Nevada College, where she was named Distinguished Visiting Professor/Writer in Residence 2014-2015. She served as Inlandia Literary Laureate from 2012-2014, acting as literary ambassador to and for the Inland Empire region of Southern California. During her tenure, she worked extensively with the community, including at-risk youth, and edited the anthology ORANGELANDIA: The Literature of Inland Citrus.
