Monday, Monday: An evening for poetry, book art, Zerby lecture
Monday nights may be moribund in some precincts, but Bates College is an exception to that tendency on March 7.
Consider this evening’s happenings:
- A 6 p.m. talk on the Bates College Museum of Art exhibition Bound to Art, which uses books from Bates’ Special Collections Library to explore centuries’ worth of book art. The speaker is Katherine Stefko, curator of the exhibition and director of the Edmund S. Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library.
- The 7 p.m. Zerby Lecture, in which Paul Knitter, a leading theologian of religious pluralism, addresses the topic Without Buddha, I Could Not Be a Christian.
- At 7:30 p.m., a Language Arts Live reading of poetry by Major Jackson, author of three poetry collections.
