For the Boyer Lecture 2011, best-selling author and journalist Geraldine Brooks
tackles the topic of The Idea of Home. Drawing on her personal experience from being an adolescent pen pal to being a foreign correspondent in some of the world's most dangerous countries to being a writer of several award-winning books including the Pulitzer Prize winner March, Brooks reflects on what it means to be both a global citizen and a novelist at home in an increasingly fractured world. The individual lectures are: Our Only Home, A Home on Bland Street, A Writer at Home and At Home in the World.
