Retyping Carson McCullers has begun

Jump to Comments

Some might know of Nyack, New York as the former home of the painter Edward Hopper. Just down the road from Hopper’s house is where the author Carson McCullers lived from 1945 until her death in 1967. A colonial revival house at 131 South Broadway, the Carson McCullers House is where she wrote The Member of the Wedding.

“I was always homesick for a place I had never seen, and now I have found it,” McCullers wrote of Nyack. “It is here, this house, this town.”

Tim Youd will be retyping that novel on the front porch of the building today and tomorrow. He’ll also be performing at the Pickwick Book Shop at 8 South Broadway this week (Thursday through Saturday) and will be back at McCullers’s porch on Sunday and Monday to finish the novel.
