January 14th – Genesee Reading Series at Writers & Books

The Genesee Reading Series on January 14 presents two provocative and original thinkers and writers, Peter Lovenheim and Peter Conners.  Please come at 7PM for refreshments and enjoy the program starting at 7:30.

Peter Lovenheim is a journalist whose articles and essays have appeared in the New York Times, New York magazine, and other publications. He teaches writing in the Department of English at Rochester Institute of Technology. He holds a degree in journalism from Boston University and in law from Cornell Law School. In addition to his most recent book, In the Neighborhood, he is author of a previous work of narrative non fiction, Portrait of a Burger as a Young Calf, a first-hand attempt to understand the food chain. He has written essays and short stories, and is author or co-author of several books for the general reader about mediation and conflict resolution, including Mediate, Don’t Litigate: Strategies for Successful Mediation, with Lisa Guerin, and Becoming a Mediator: Your Guide to Career Opportunities, with Emily Doskow, both from Nolo Press. His book Reading Between the Lines, selected and edited with Rabbi David Katz, is a collection of contemporary stories—modern midrash—based on the Hebrew Bible. He has three children and lives in Rochester, New York.
