GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Schulman spoke at the Writers on Writing event, Monday at SF State and will visit The Poetry Center Thursday, April 7, to talk about her writing process, her new novel “The Cosmopolitans” and what occupies her in life. She is also a documentarist, a gay rights activist and a playwright, for which she has been awarded a Guggenheim Award. “Sarah is one of the most intelligent authors,” said Steve Dicksion, director of The Poetry Center. “She is really brilliant at thinking about the urban environment and the life of gay and lesbian individuals. And she has been an activist and very much engaged in thinking about it and depicting and writing this new literature that has really come into flourishing in the past half century.”
