Author and University of South Florida Professor of Creative Writing Heather Sellers will host a reading of her memoir at Eckerd tonight.
The book, entitled “You Don’t Look Like Anyone I Know: A True Story of Family, Face Blindness, and Forgiveness,” explores Sellers’ life with prosopagnosia, or face blindness, a condition that renders her unable to recognize faces. In addition to reading from the memoir, she will discuss her journey to diagnosis and the ways in which her condition has uniquely affected her life and work.
“Heather Sellers is a versatile talent, whose love of language invigorates her stories, poems and essays,” Scott Ward, professor of literature and creative writing, said. “She is a vital and charming presence on the page and behind the podium.”
The event is presented by the creative writing discipline as part of the College Program Series. It will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Lewis House, located adjacent to the Doyle Sailing Cove and the Kappa parking lot, and is free and open to the public.
