Her first novel, The Painting, was nominated for the Northern California Book Award, named by the San Francisco Chronicle as a best book for 2004 and by MSNBC as a "fearless debut." Nina earned her undergraduate degree at Stanford University, a law degree at Hastings College of the Law, and a MFA in creative writing at San Francisco State University.

Is that a book?!
Yes, it is. Artists' books are one-of-a-kind art objects that defy conventional "reading" experiences by engaging the viewer through sight, touch, and physical manipulation. We think these books are too often locked behind exhibit cases.
The Environmental Design Library invites you to explore and enjoy 20 unique artist books at a special hands on event.
Time: Friday, August 28th from 4-6PM
Location: Atrium of the Environmental Design Library, 210 Wurster Hall
Hosted by David Eifler, Jennifer Osgood, Molly Rose and Lauri Twitchell

Decorating your room or apartment? Are your walls looking drab? Stop by the library and pick up a framed art print to enjoy at home. The best way to appreciate art is to live with it.
The Graphics Arts Loan Collection offers UCB students, faculty and staff the chance to borrow prints that survey several styles, art movements, and artists, from Impressionism to Cubism, and from Rembrandt to Miro.
The Library will present the collection and explain how to borrow the pieces at an event in the Morrison Library where you will have a chance to view the pieces.
When: September 2nd , 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
