Weinstein, Lawrence A.

Lawrence A. Weinstein

From 1973 to 1983, Lawrence Weinstein taught at Harvard University, where he was in charge of the course "Expository Writing, Theory and Practice" and co-founded Harvard’s Writing Center. Since 1983, he has been a member of the English Department of Bentley College in Waltham, Massachusetts. In 2001, the National Council of Teachers of English published his Writing at the Threshold, a book on writing instruction at the high school and college levels which has remained an NCTE bestseller ever since.

In addition, Weinstein has written several full-length plays. One, New Curtains for Macbeth, was produced in 2003 by the Lyric Stage Company of Boston, and was named a finalist at the International Playwriting Festival in the UK. Another, The La Vidas’ Landlord, will receive its world premiere at Theatre 3 in Dallas in March 2008.

Weinstein will be touring nationally to promote the release of Grammar for the Soul. He will be making public appearances in major markets such as Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Dallas, and Washington, D.C. Having served four terms on the school board of Cambridge, MA—and having emceed or presided at hundreds of campus events over the years, including Q&A sessions about pieces of his own writing—he is quite used to addressing groups of people and, in fact, thoroughly enjoys the experience. A complete schedule of his tour will soon be available athttp://www.questbooks.net/authorEvents.cfm.
