Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Lori Duran: Nonfiction history.
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
LD: Isadora Tattlin, and I would ask, “What are your most prominent memories of Cuba during the 1990’s and the time you lived there?”
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
LD: I would bring Black Night, White Snow: Russia’s Revolutions 1905-1917 by Harrison Salisbury.
Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?
LD: I have learned there is a wealth of information here in Austin about the craft of writing and there is great support available at the Writers’ League of Texas.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
LD: I would like to continue writing and I am interested in writing about a local politician and his family.
Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?
LD: I could not put down Indelible Austin: More Selected Stories by Michael Barnes.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
