... is scheduled as the guest speaker for the 179th meeting of the Karl Hess Club, to convene on May 18, 2009.



     Nancy Shiffrin on "Anais Nin: Individualist, Thinker, Creativity Advocate, Hot Babe."


Many people know of Anais Nin as a friend of Henry Miller. Nancy Shiffrin knew Nin as a teacher in the last year of her life.

Nin was an important literary theorist, a diarist who recorded a fascinating slice of history, an essayist who thought deeply about about women's liberty and individuality, and a creativity advocate who nurtured artists.
