Writing for Life
(Portland), (Literary Arts), (2011). A limited edition pamphlet printing a talk Lopez gave at the Literary Arts' Writers in Schools annual fundraiser, in Portland, OR, in 2010. This is Copy #433 of 1000 copies. Although issued unsigned, this copy has been inscribed by Lopez: "To Bryce -- very best wishes/ Barry Lopez." With his typical eloquence, Lopez addresses not how to teach writing but how the passion for writing (or perhaps for any endeavor) may be passed on; what it means to be a writer, a teacher, a student; and how the bonds between these (and between us) are made and fulfilled. Trace edge sunning, still fine in stapled wrappers. Lopez's return address is taped to the last blank, as though cut from a mailing envelope. More uncommon than its limitation would suggest.
