Adamson Writers Series presents Pico Iyer
Apr 2, 2013
Moving and Sitting Still in Our New Global Order, an Adamson Writers Series lecture, reception, and book signing with internationally renowned essayist and novelist Pico Iyer. More and more of us are living with parts of ourselves in many different cultures, our parents from one place, our partners from another, our dreams in a third, while we live in a fourth. How does this alter the way we think of home, of belonging, of community? How does it affect the way we live, the way we love and make art? In a deeply personal way, drawing on experiences from his travels across the world, from North Korea to Easter Island, Pico Iyer will talk about the possibilities and challenges of our new global order and a fresh millennium that draws much of its excitement from the meetings, the passageways between cultures, and not fixed places or identities. Might the Age of Movement even give a new importance, a fresh beauty to stillness?
