See who’s going!

Chasing Weather with Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg & Stephen Locke

“The sky is made of rivers before and after they became rivers,” Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg writes in  Chasing Weather, a collaborative book featuring weather chaser/photographer Stephen Locke’s images and Kansas Poet Laureate Emeritus Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg’s poetry (Ice Cube Press). Come see a multi-media presentation that includes images and videos of wild weather matched with stirring poems. Weather subtly shapes our days, infuses our moods and interactions, and at times, completely re-orients our lives. Catching moments of stunning beauty and surprising shifts in the sky helps make the vibrant and variable world more visible to us, and shows us how to truly see where and who we are.

Wednesday November 5th at 7pm in the Auditorium.
