Speaking in defense of the humanities, Augusta, Me, May 17

For those in Central and Southern Maine, I'll be giving the lunch address at the University of Maine's Maine Humanities Summit this Friday, May 17 in Augusta.

My talk is titled “Liberal Arts in the Real World: An Author-Historian-Journalist’s Argument for the Importance of the Humanities," which sums it up pretty well. Other participants include museum directors, library heads, college and university professors, and the chair of the American Folk Festival. There's a PDF with the full agenda here.

I gather the event is free and open to the public, but you do need to register in advance. For more  information go online or contact UMaine Humanities Initiative Director Justin Wolff, 207.581.3259
