J.F. Powers, novelist and short story writer

Katherine A. Powers—a writer, book reviewer, and former book columnist for the Boston Globe—will discuss her recent edition of her father’s letters, Suitable Accommodations: An Unwritten Story of Family Life: The Letters of J. F. Powers, 1942–1963. Two editors with ties to the Powers family and the Editorial Institute will also share their thoughts: former Book Editor of the Boston Globe David Mehegan, who received his PhD from the institute in 2011, and Cassandra Nelson, who edited stories by J. F. Powers’ wife, Betty Wahl, for her MA thesis in 2007.
