The author of four critically acclaimed novels and an award-winning non-fiction book, moderator Carol Dawson has written for a number of national and local publications. In addition to teaching creative writing, she is also a painter whose work has been featured in major art magazines and is represented by several galleries across the country. Her latest book is an historical novel set in late seventeenth century Massachusetts.
