Visiting Author Series: Landscapes of Feeling with Leslie Jamison

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

This class will examine how we write about places that are charged with emotion--landscapes both remembered and imagined, how place becomes a prompt and a catalyst and a fissure opening onto vast subterranean caverns of feeling. We'll be exploring how place can serve not only as a launching-off point for narratives but as a way to structure and interrogate our emotional experiences. In addition to discussing two published essays, we'll be examining various literary maps and generating maps of our own. Before class meets, please read "Seattle, 1974" and "Holiday Review."

Class will be followed by a short Q&A and book signing, and we hope you'll join Jamison for her reading at the Tattered Cover in LoDo (1628 16th St., Denver, CO, 80202) at 7:00 PM that evening.
