Author Jennifer Lunden in conversation with Author Jane Brox on Lunden's New Book, American Breakdown
Celebrate the release of American Breakdown: Our Ailing Nation, My Body’s Revolt, and the Nineteenth-Century Woman Who Brought Me Back to Life with author Jennifer Lunden, in conversation with Jane Brox. Praised by the Washington Post as “[a] rigorous cultural critique…compelling, detailed, and absorbing,” this wide-ranging, genre-crossing literary mystery interweaves Lunden’s quest to understand the source of her own condition with her telling of the story of the chronically ill 19th-century diarist Alice James—ultimately uncovering the many hidden health hazards of life in America. Books will be available for sale and signing (cash/check only) courtesy of Gulf of Maine Books.
Jennifer Lunden is an author, poet, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and former therapist. She is the recipient of the 2019 Maine Arts Fellowship for literary arts and the 2016 Bread Loaf-Rona Jaffe Foundation Scholarship in Nonfiction.

Jane Brox’s fifth book, Silence, was selected as an Editors’ Choice by The New York Times Book Review and received the Maine Literary Award for Nonfiction. Her previous book, Brilliant: The Evolution of Artificial Light, was named one of the top ten nonfiction books of 2010 by Time magazine. She is also the author of Clearing Land: Legacies of the American Farm; Five Thousand Days Like This One, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in nonfiction; and Here and Nowhere Else, which won the L.L. Winship/PEN New England Award. Brox has received the New England Book Award for nonfiction, and her essays have appeared in many journals and anthologies including Best American Essays, The Norton Book of Nature Writing, The Georgia Review and NewYorker.com. She has been awarded grants from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Maine Arts Commission.

(BRUNSWICK, MAINE)—Friends and colleagues of Evan Gershkovich, of the Bowdoin College Class of 2014, are coming to the Bowdoin campus September 26 to keep the plight of the jailed Wall Street Journal reporter in the spotlight and highlight the ongoing struggle for press freedom in much of the world.
Gershkovich, who was based in Moscow, was arrested by the Russian authorities five months ago while on assignment in the city of Yekaterinburg in the east of the country and charged with espionage, although no evidence has been presented. Today he remains behind bars in Moscow, in pretrial detention for at least another three months, in spite of repeated calls for his release from the White House, US lawmakers, the United Nations, international media organizations, and others.
A community conversation will be held on campus on September 26 to talk about Gershkovich, his work as a journalist, his life as a student, and the broader theme of the challenges facing independent journalism in places like Russia. The event is the brainchild of Gershkovich’s Bowdoin friends and fellow journalists Linda Kinstler ’13 and Nora Biette-Timmons ’14. The gathering, they said, will be a chance to bring Gershkovich’s friends, teachers, colleagues, and supporters from Bowdoin and beyond together to rally support for Evan, and to underscore the threats to journalists all over the world.
“Our friend and colleague Evan has been imprisoned in Moscow for five months, simply because he was doing his job,” said Kinstler. “We want to make sure that Evan comes home as soon as possible, and want him to know that we are thinking about him and keeping his case front of mind.”
The discussion panel, to be moderated by Professor of Government and Asian Studies Henry Laurence, will include A. Leroy Greason Professor of English Brock Clarke, who has fond memories of teaching Gershkovich in his creative writing class. “I thought the world of Evan when he was a student, and I think the world of him as a journalist, and a human being. I look forward to talking and hearing more about him on the twenty-sixth,” said Clarke.
The panel is also due to feature the WSJ’s Washington editor, Paul Beckett. “What happened to Evan,” said Beckett, “is indicative of the increasing risks faced by journalists around the world, and it’s critical we continue to highlight not only his case but also how this sort of assault on journalism ultimately impacts everyone. Press freedom is absolutely essential for a free society, and we’re grateful for all of Bowdoin’s support for Evan as well as the opportunity to bring this important discussion to campus.”
“Having so many people come together from different parts of Evan’s life to plan this event was very important to us, and we are so grateful to everyone who’s helped make it happen,” said Biette-Timmons.
The event will be held Tuesday, September 26, 7:30 p.m.–8:45 p.m., in Pickard Theater, Memorial Hall, and will be livestreamed at bowdoin.edu/live. Check the Bowdoin Calendar for more details as the date approaches.
