Those literary figures include Writers’ Program instructors Suzanne Lummis (who picked Day of the Locust by Nathaniel West) and Michelle Meyering (Play it as it Lays by Joan Didion), as well as former Writers’ Program student Natashia Deon who selected Shooting Elvis by instructor Robert Eversz. In addition, Kate Orphan, Administrative Manager for the Last Bookstore, picked instructor Francesca Lia Block’s Weetzie Bat as her top choice.
