Jeff and I went to the Quarry yesterday for a great 30 minute tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and helped us “see” bones in the ground and put some of the pieces together. We enjoyed our time as well as the drive. We saw flowering cactus, sunflowers, primroses and globe mallow - beautiful day.

If he were with us today, François André Camoin would celebrate his 85 th birthday on June 20. Yet, he died five years ago at age 79 on March 18, 2019. The Writing from the Land workshop François helped establish in the early 90s—and revitalized three years ago through sponsorship ofthe Doctorow Foundation—happens to be in the middle of these two dates. What better way to honor his memory and support today’s writers than to have a few readings from his published works and remembrances from family and those who knew him.

François was born in Nice, France, in 1939, coming to the United States in 1951. He was educated at Kenyon College, the University of Arizona, and the University of Massachusetts, where he received a Ph.D. in Jacobean Drama. He was a full professor at the University of Utah teaching creative writing, modern literature, and intellectual traditions of the West. François was an inspiring teacher who cared more about his students’ accomplishments than his own.

The Entrada Institute, partnering with Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation, celebrates François as a founding member of the Institute and the
organizing force of Writing from the Land Workshop.

Join us this Thursday night, May 16, at 7 p.m. at Robbers Roost, 185 West Main Streety, in Torrey, Utah. There will be readings from his published works and remembrances.
