Writer Rod Dreher will present a talk titled “How Dante Can Save Our Lives” on Thursday, April 16 at 8 p.m. in the Warner Memorial Library at Eastern University, Radnor. It explains the wisdom of Dante Alighieri, the Medieval poet and author of “The Divine Comedy,” which many consider history’s greatest poem.
The talk is the final in the Agora Institute Lecture Series for the year. It examined how artists in various forms can enlarge the public’s perception of the common good and expand one’s imagination.
It is a project of Eastern University’s Agora Institute for Civic Virtue and the Common Good. See agorainstitute.org for more information.
