Central Library Events:

The Writings of Bob Dylan: Seeing From a Different Point of View
2017-09-18; 6:30  pm - 8:00  pm
Central Library - Rundel Arts Room, 1st floor Rundel Memorial Building
Age Level: Adult
Let's get together and talk about Bob Dylan! He has not only been performing and writing for over 50 years, but is now a Novel Prize winner. He was the Voice of a Generation - but he, and we, keep changing as the decades roll by. Let's get to the heart of his writing - his nuanced use of poetic and literary devices, the references to literature and the Bible which are sprinkled throughout his work, his themes and genres and points of view. Bob Dylan has been telling stories of America, and Americans, for so long now, and we are lucky to have him in our midst.  

This is a two-part course with Lisa Kleman, taking place on Mondays, September 18 & 25. Space is limited and registration is required. Please register here or contact Carol Moldt at 428-8375 for more information or to register. Sponsored by the Arts & Literature Division. Free and open to the public.

Lisa Kleman, a former English Adjunct Professor, is now enjoying teaching Creative Writing while she researches, writes, and gives public talks about her relatives - the musical Dossenbachs - who lived in Rochester in the decades just before and after the turn of the 20th century.
