A conversation with Laura van den Berg, Joyce Maynard and David Treuer

When writing memoir, personal essays, or turning their own experiences into fiction, what happens to an author’s privacy? With today’s emphasis on “lived experiences,” does every author have to offer up everything about themselves for public consumption? And in terms of genre–when the lines between fact and fiction are smudged, what can open up within the writer and also within conversations with readers?
