As part of the 2013 Virginia Seminar in June, author Carlene Bauer offered a lecture on faith and writing that was open to the public. The audio of her fabulous presentation is available now, by clicking here. Please check back later for a written transcript of this lecture.
Bauer’s most recent work, Frances and Bernard, is a narrative through letters exchanged between two writers on the rise who meet in an artists’ colony in 1957. Her characters are inspired by the lives of Flannery O’Connor and Robert Lowell. Read the New York Times review of her work here.
The Virginia Seminar in Lived Theology is a theological initiative that offers theologians and scholars of religion an opportunity to work and write in sustained engagement with critical issues in religion and public life; and it further provides practitioners the time to think and write in sustained and direct engagement with theologians and scholars.
