Forbes Library Reading Series - Nature: Word and Image
7:00 PM19:00

Forbes Library Reading Series - Nature: Word and Image

Forbes Library, Northampton, Massachusetts
May 9, 2018 7 pm

The Forbes Library’s author reading series, now in its third season, explores contemporary themes on the premise that libraries offer vibrant spaces to engage with and explore our era’s most pressing questions – questions that in their surprises and contradictions can be understood through either a realistic lens or through fantasy, science fiction and the surreal. The series invites the community to join us in examining how story and art can provide empathy and insight in our accelerating world.

The series features writers in genres ranging from fiction to nonfiction to poetry. The role of the image in conveying literary themes will be explored, too, in events on comics & graphic novels, film and screenwriting, and nature word-and-image pairings. Current issues from our political and social milieu will also form an important backbone as these authors share from their fine work.
