An Evening with the Mountain Keepers

February 8, 2009

On April 9, the University of Kentucky Writing Program is sponsoring “An Evening with the Mountainkeepers,” the germinal event in the WP Community Engagement Series.  The festivities begin at 6 PM in the UK Student Center Ballroom.  It’s a free event that is open to the public.

The fundamental premise behind this event is that public writing and grassroots community action must work together to ensure a healthy, participatory democracy.  The evening includes an art exhibit by the Beehive Collective, presentations by Dave Cooper and Larry Gibson, a reading by Erik Reece, author of Lost Mountain:  A Year in the Vanishing Wilderness (2006), poetry by Anne Shelby, and music by the Americana / Folk group Public Outcry.

If you live in, near, or around Lexington, I hope that you take the time to mark this event on your calendars and plan to attend.
