Faculty Book Talk: City of Dante

  • October 10, 2019 • 4:30 PM – 6 PM
  • Olin Library, Rm. 142

Poet Kevin McFadden and Jeff Pike, professor in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, will discuss City of Dante, a poetry sequence by McFadden based on illustrations by Pike. The poetry sequence is an elegy on a father’s death that revisits Dante’s Florence and explores the spiritual stations between doubt and belief. Pike created imagery for the book while in Florence.

The talk will take place in Olin Library’s Rm. 142, followed by a special reception.
