November 2 Meeting – Dr. Susan Ford Wiltshire

Please join us on Thursday, November 2, when Dr. Susan Ford Wiltshire, Vanderbilt Professor of Classical Studies Emerita, will present “Stories, Stages, Situations.” In forty years as a Classics professor, Wiltshire published books on Vergil’s Aeneid, the Bill of Rights, an AIDS memoir, a study of mentoring, short stories, and a collection of poetry. This apparent diversity coheres because Susan sees all writing as storytelling. The stories come from what we have read, seen, and lived in various stages and situations.

We meet at Jonathan’s in Green Hills, with our program, which is free and open to the public, beginning at 6 p.m. Arrive early to mingle with attendees, starting at 5:00, maybe order a bite to eat. Bring a friend!

“Guiding spirits slip in and out of Susan Ford Wiltshire’s luminous world. Because Wiltshire has a gentle, reverent heart, she finds them in likely and unlikely places—texts ancient and contemporary, art in every form or guise, new friends and old. Because she has a tough, resilient mind, she invites them to lead her into new and richer modes of being.” –Celia Morris, author of Fanny Wright: Rebel in America.
