"Coming to the Rescue: Fly-fishing, Contemporary Drama, and Why We Teach"

Dramatist John Orlock will share his reflections on the relationship between art, teaching, history, and how the points of satisfaction inherent in a well-cast Quill Gordon or a well-delivered lecture can beinstrumental in shaping the life of both teacher & student.

Orlock will also read excerpts from several of his plays that offer perspectives on such cultural figures as Machiavelli, Charles & Anne Lindbergh, Antoine de Saint Exupéry, the Three Stooges, Leonardo da Vinci, and two spinster sisters in 1902 Louisville, Kentucky.

The lecture will be on Thursday, September 27th at 5:30 pm at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture. Doors open at 5:00 pm, and the event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the lecture. The event is sponsored by the Margaret & Harry Hausser Fund for Excellence and the Department of History & Philosophy.
