Stories Inspired by the Paintings of Edward Hopper Tell a Friend about this Course

Be among the first to read selections from Lawrence Block’s new book “In Sunlight or In Shadow: Stories Inspired by the Paintings of Edward Hopper.” “Hopper’s paintings never tell a story as much as they invite viewers to find for themselves the untold stories within,” says Block who invited 17 writers to contribute to an innovative anthology of new writings inspired by the paintings. Do the paintings resonate with you the same way? See for yourself when you discuss selected writings from among the contributing authors including Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King and Pulitzer Prize winner, Robert Olen Butler.
