An Evening with Camille Paglia

We are celebrating National Library Week April 13-19, 2014. During this week, libraries host special events to highlight the unique roles libraries play in changing people’s lives.

We start off with The Chanticleer Lecture on Sunday, April 13 @ 2:00pm and then on Tuesday, April 15 @ 7:00pm, author, scholar, teacher and critic, Camille Paglia will present what promises to be an exciting evening in the Winsor Room.

Camille Paglia

 Paglia is the author of six books and numerous articles on art, literature, popular culture, feminism, politics and religion for publications around the world. In her recent book, Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art From Egypt To Star Wars, Paglia argues that the art world is in spirtual crisis. For the university professor, the spiritual quest defines all great art—all art that lasts.

See you at the Library,
