First Friday Lunch & Learn | Kansas Weather in Life, Literature, & Photography
December 3, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Lunch & Learn with Humanities Kansas
First Friday each month at 12 noon
In partnership with Humanities Kansas, LCL will host, “Kansas Weather in Life, Literature, & Photography,” a presentation & discussion by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg. It’s part of Humanities Kansas’ Movement of Ideas Speakers Bureau, featuring presentations and workshops designed to share stories that inspire, spark conversation that inform, and generate insights that strengthen civic engagement.
When it comes to talking about the weather, we have a lot to say in Kansas, & for good reason: not only is our weather some of the most dramatic in the world, but our relationship to weather shapes how we see ourselves. This presentation opens with weather chaser Stephen Locke’s vibrant images of Kansas weather paired with poetry by contemporary Kansas writers inspired by the drama that unfolds in the Kansas sky. Audience members will have an opportunity to share their own weather-related stories & striking images through a short 10-minute writing prompt that will lead into a discussion about how the weather influences our lives, our understanding of the natural world, & what it means to be a Kansan.
Call the library to RSVP; limited space available!
