2013 Friends of Library Lecture: “Presenting Culture: The Curator as Steward, Critic, and Provocateur,” by Gregory Wolfe

When: Thursday, April 18, 7:30 p.m.

Where: Upper Gwinn Commons

The 2013 Friends of the Library Lecture will be delivered by Gregory Wolfe, founder and editor-in-chief of Image: A Journal of the Arts and Religion, writer-in-residence at Seattle Pacific University, and founding director of SPU’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. In addition to building a variety of literary programs and institutions, Wolfe is a prolific author of essays, reviews, and books, including Beauty Will Save the World. He will speak about the curator’s roles as a protector of artistic tradition, an arbiter of taste, and a creative force in his or her own right.

The Friends of the Library Lecture is an annual public lecture started for and sponsored by the Friends of the SPU Library. Members of this group contribute to an endowment that strengthens the library’s resources and enhances its ability to support the discovery, creation, and sharing of knowledge at Seattle Pacific.
