Sun, May 6, 2018
The sweeping horizons of Illinois prairie, with grasses 6 feet high or more, have dazzled and mystified people for centuries. Explore the impressions this landscape left on poets and authors with guest speaker Dr. Dan Guillory. Alongside some of his own poetry and photographs, Guillory will reveal how the Illinois prairie defines a geographical and cultural place that continues to engage our eyes and our imagination. Dr. Guillory is a Professor Emeritus of Millikin University and an author of nine books.
