Stack of books


Marin County Welcomes Lewis Buzbee

Book Passages is the place to be Thursday, 9/25 at 7 PM

Buzbee is a highly esteemed teacher in the MFA in Creative Writing Program at

the University of San Francisco.  

His new book    Blackboard: A Personal History of the Classroom

“Blackboard: A Personal History of the Classroom looks to the origins of kindergarten, muses on the architecture of schools, and organizing principles and objects of the classroom like the blackboard and the desk, to discover what those spaces and objects tell students about the importance of learning. Buzbee adds insight not only as student, but also as a teacher and a father as he contrasts his daughter’s experiences with his own.

This unique and refreshing approach to the subject makes for a warm and accessible read, and his story stands as a testament to what school can achieve in the life of a student.”


Lewis Buzbee is the author of  The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop, After the Gold Rush, and Fliegelman’s Desire, as well as three award-winning novels for younger readers, Steinbeck’s Ghost, The Haunting of Charles Dickens, and Bridge of Time.

He lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughter.
