Karen Swallow Prior, “The Good Life in Great Books”

 

Monday, Sept. 21, 7 p.m.

St. Paul Student Center Theater

Our desires are shaped by both knowledge and practice. Visions of the good life presented in the world’s best literature can be agents for cultivating knowledge of and desire for the good. In this year’s Holmer Lecture, Karen Swallow Prior will talk about the ways great books cultivate knowledge, form desire, and thereby profoundly shape the personal and spiritual lives of their readers.
