Richard Bausch Hosts Chapman Lecture: Writing as Freedom

The Chapman Visiting Scholar Series for the 2017 Spring season kicked off on Saturday, February 18th at the Annex in our downtown Santa Ana site. Our guest speaker, Richard Bausch, is a Chapman University English Professor at the Wilkinson College of Arts, Humanities and Social Science. Bausch is most popularly known as an American novelist and a master of the short story form, having published twelve novels and eight collections of short stories. Writing as Freedom was the title of his lecture. 
 
In attendance were 50 NAC scholars eager to learn about the art of writing. Bausch was calm and collected, reading passages from one of his books to the sea of students who were fixated on the gravity of the content delivered; he moved the crowd with the same influence the moon has on the tides of the Earth. His passages differed in length, the content spread out to captivate the minds in the room, and Bausch shared with scholars the atmosphere that he dwelled in during the writing of said story. Other readings were dense and heavy, leaving a vivid image in the students’ minds like the silhouettes that remain in sight after a bright object borrows the eyes of the beholder for a moment of intense visual stimulation, re-living the moment with every blink!
