NEW YORK ENCOUNTER 2010 - Words and the “I”: How Literature Helps Us to Judge the World and Our Experience
Why read literature? How will it enhance my life?
With Paul ELIE, Author and Senior Editor at Farrar, Straus & Giroux, John WATERS, Journalist for The Irish Times, author and playwright, and Greg WOLFE, Publisher and Editor of Image
Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center and Communion and Liberation
New York Encounter is a three-day cultural festival organized by Crossroads Cultural Center and Communion and Liberation. The idea of a "cultural festival" starts from the perception that there is a need for a fresh start in education and a new vibe for cultural initiatives. It also starts from the desire to communicate in New York the remarkable vastness, openness, richness, and profundity of cultural life and a passion for what is human that springs from the education to the Catholic faith taking place in Communion and Liberation.
New York Encounter features conferences on topics that are widely discussed in the public arena, as well as artistic performances, and will take place in New York on January 16 - 18, 2010. All conferences are open to the public and free of charge.
