Author of A LIGHT IN THE FOREST, Conrad Richter, was Nob Hill Resident
NORTH VALLEY--MaryAnn blinks, but David R. Johnson and Harvena Richter seem wide awake in Ms. Richter's north valley adobe. Ms. Richter, author and poet, is the daughter of Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Conrad Richter. He was a former Nob Hill resident, living on Carlisle NE just a little north of Campus Blvd. David Johnson is a Conrad Richter scholar and friend of MaryAnn from their days at Penn State. Dr. Johnson works at Lafayette College in Easton, PA. David, MaryAnn, and I later went out for dinner at the Prairie Star.
