Julia Moraes's Photography + Adriana Lisboa's Women Writing Brazil

Wednesday, September 13 from 6-7:30pm @ ASLD

Speakers: Photographer Julia Moraes + Author Adriana Lisboa

In collaboration of the Biennial of the Americas, join Art Students League of Denver (ASLD) and Lighthouse Writers Workshop (LWW) for a special program about the intersection of literature and art. Co-presented by a writer and a visual artist or art historian, each program pairs a work of literature and a work of visual art together. The speakers discuss both, and make connections between the two. The audience is encouraged to read the book and review the visual art piece prior to each program, and to engage in the discussion during the Q & A session. All are welcome, including those who have not yet read the book.
