Writers on Writing ft. Author Prudence Farrow Bruns

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 - 15:00

Writers on Writing is hosting Prudence Farrow Bruns, author of Dear Prudence: The Story Behind the Song.

 “The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you...”  Farrow unflinchingly explores how music, drugs, the Vietnam War, and eastern mysticism changed millions of young people’s world views during one of America’s most tumultuous decades.  But who was Prudence? Did she ever come out into the sunshine and greet the new day, as John Lennon beseeched her to do? What’s the real story behind the song?

The OLLI community is invited to hear her story.
