Letting in a Little More Light: A Writer’s Responsibility in the Anthropocene
Join Kurt Caswell, professor of creative writing at Texas Tech University and author of the book Laika: The Legacy of a Soviet Space Dog, as he discusses how the current political climate in the U.S. is a distraction from climate change and the real possibility of our own extinction. During this critical time, he asks the question, what is the writer’s responsibility to the future of our planet? This event is part of the Words Matter series, celebrating the power of the written word to change lives, inspire action, and empower the storyteller in all of us, presented by Gemini Ink and Trinity University Press.
