Judith is a writer and broadcaster living in Baltimore. She is the author of Beyond the Baobab, a collection of essays exploring the themes of immigration, and she is the evening drive time host of Maryland’s classical music station, WBJC.
Judith Krummeck has chosen eight of her favorite personal essayists, ranging in style, period, gender, and nationality. In the first session, we will take a ruminative walk around Virginia Woolf’s London; we’ll be privy to the crack-up of F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1936 and of Cheryl Strayed’s in 2002; and Italy’s Natalia Ginsburg will give us an amusingly astute portrait of her marriage of opposites. In the second session, we will experience a migraine with Joan Didion; blindness with Jorge Luis Borges; an aching reflection of 9/11 from Brian Doyle; and we’ll end with David Foster Wallace gamely pushing the boundaries of form.
