Time: 07:30 PM

Location: Zoom Webinar

Please join us TONIGHT, Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. for the 2020 Catholicism and the Arts Lecture presented by award-winning writer of prose and poetry Fanny Howe.

Howe's lecture title, “Embryonic,” is taken from the first essay in her nonfiction work Needle’s Eye: Passing Through Youth. Writer and professor Kimberly Lamm described Howe’s work as “unique in contemporary poetry for its exploration of religious faith, ethics, politics, and suffering.”

Fanny Howe is the author of more than 30 books of poetry and prose, including Night Philosophy (2020), Love and I (2019), and Second Childhood (2014). She grew up in Boston and taught literature and writing for decades at MIT, Tufts, and elsewhere before teaching at University of California, San Diego where she is currently professor emerita in literature.
