'The Art of Losing:' a discussion with author Priscilla Gilman - Harrison Public Library
Add to Calendar 14-04-2013 14-04-2013 15 'The Art of Losing:' a discussion with author Priscilla Gilman Harrison Public Library presents "The Art of Losing," a discussion with acclaimed author Priscilla Gilman, on Sunday, April 14 at 2pm. This event is made possible through the "Conversations Bureau," a new program of the New York Council for the Humanities. "Conversation Bureau" discussions are made possible with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities. "The art of losing isn't hard to master," Elizabeth Bishop writes in the first line of "One Art," her poem about loss, time, illness and aging, death, grief, and the redemptive powers of memory and art. Participants will discuss Bishop's poem as an act of nostalgia, elegy, memory, and memorialization, a meditation on the nature of romantic love and its loss via break-up, divorce, or death, an exploration of loss and mourning, a gesture of healing and acceptance, a reflection on mortality, and an affirmation of the value of poetry. How do we confront and cope with loss, whether it be the seemingly mundane misplacing of keys or the waste of precious time, the loss of a job, a home, a time in one's life, good health, a beloved person, a dream or ideal? Bishop's poem will spark a profound and spirited conversation about topics that matter most. Priscilla Gilman grew up in New York City and received her BA and PhD in English and American literature from Yale University. She is a former professor of English literature at both Yale and Vassar College. Gilman writes regularly for publications including The Daily Beast, New York Times, and Huffington Post, and speaks frequently at schools, conferences, and organizations about parenting, education, and the arts. She lives in New York City with her family. Her book, "The Anti-Romantic Child" was nominated for a Books for a Better Life Award for Best First Book. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Harrison Public Library. Space is limited and sign up is required. Please call the Library at 914-835-0324 or see harrisonpl.org to sign up. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=131698 Harrison Public Library true DD/MM/YYYY
