Devon, PA. Thanks to some generous winter snow storms that gave me time to get some serious sledding done with the kids, my speaking engagement at Northwestern was pushed back. Consequently, this week offers a veritable abundance of Eliotic events. Here are the corrected details; if you are anywhere near Philadelphia or Chicago this week, you’re certainly welcome to these free lectures.
February 14, 2011, 4:30 pm. James Matthew Wilson addresses Villanova students, faculty, and the general public on Villanova student theater’s production of T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral. Wilson’s lecture is titled, “Bishop on Broadway, or What to Make of Murder.” The play runs from Feb. 15-19th. Details for the lecture and production can be found here.
February 17, 2011, 7:30 pm. James Matthew Wilson addresses the Northwestern University Socratic Club, giving the lecture “The Rock against Shakespeare: Stoicism and Community in T.S. Eliot.” Event will be held at the John Evans Alumni Center (1800 Sheridan Rd, Evanston), and is open to the public.
