Larry Baker - "Personal Experience and Literary Influence" 

Novelist Larry Baker will attempt to show how the convergence of personal experience and literary influence shapes the writing process, sometimes blurring the line between a writer and the characters he creates. Baker is the author of A Good Man, Flamingo Rising, Love and Other Delusions and Athens, America. He updates the world of Flannery O'Connor's characters through the Bush years and into the age of Obama in his critically acclaimed novel, A Good Man



Kevin Klinkenberg - "Why I Walk"

Kevin Klinkenberg, the executive director of the Savannah Development and Renewal Authority, will discuss his new book, Why I Walk, and will address how cities can better design urban areas to increase quality of life.
