Featuring Award-winning Poet, Theodore Roethke Distinguished University Professor and RC Alumna, Laura Kasischke
Lecture title: "The News from Poetry: In an Era of False Facts and True Fallacies, What's to be Found in Art?”
This talk will explore the ways in which art crosses borders and boundaries, both personal and global, erases political divisions to unite generations and cultures, to speak to all genders and races, to erase religious and economic divisions, while traveling eternally and generously (and for free!) from continent to continent, century to century, enduring through crises and chaos, disease and despair, to bring us the truths without which we will die.
