An evening with the creator and editor of Lapham's Quarterly
In the current issue of Lapham's Quarterly, titled Politics, Lewis Lapham writes of "the mongrel splendors of democracy" and quotes Socrates on the democratic city: "Like a coat embroidered with every kind of ornament, this city, embroidered with every kind of character, would seem to be the most beautiful." In such fashion, the legendary former editor of Harper's speaks in the present while retrieving the wisdom of the past for an age more concerned with the shallows than the depths of thought and discourse. Join us for an evening with a distinguished man of letters who maintains that "the hope of social or political change stems from language that induces a change of heart."
Monday, February 25. Program from 6:30-8 pm. Reception at 6 pm.
Admission: Members $25, Nonmembers $35, Member Teachers $10
