Newsletter: Week of January 9, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

 How can literature support us in times of change and loss?

On Sunday, Dr. Erik Gregory will help us examine how literature and art can shape our humanistic goals. He will share the reading list from "The Literature of Social Reflection," a course taught by Dr. Robert Coles, a self-described Medical Humanitarian, that influenced his life, and the ways he thinks about literature, art, and music.
Erik asks participants to bring their own statements, quotes, or poems and art to reflect upon, and to include in a shared Humanist Hub document of Wisdom and Reflection. 1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street. Read more here.
