THORNTON WILDER 101
Tuesday, February 6 at 7pm
The only writer to win a Pulitzer Prize in both literature and drama, Thornton Wilder is one of the greatest writers in the American canon. Plays likeOur Town and The Skin of Our Teeth and novels like The Bridge of San Luis Rey combine the mundane details of everyday life with the largest philosophical and emotional questions of human existence – who are we, and what, ultimately, are we here for? Few writers can balance these elements with the grace, honesty and humanity of Thornton Wilder. Artistic Director John Dias will lead a lecture about Thornton Wilder’s life and story, and how his experiences shaped his worldview and his work.
