Books & Bridges: Featuring Michael Kelly

Jul 27, 2017, 7:00 pm

Michael Kelly, Professor of Russian at BYU, will examine the crucible of faith and doubt in Dostoyevsky's classic novel THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV and explain why answers to life's "accursed questions" don't always come directly. In doing so, Dr. Kelly sheds light on the spiritual depths of the Russian soul. A question-and-answer session will follow. Fifth in a series on faith and reason.

Thursday July 27, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at Weller Book Works in Trolley Square. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served afterward.

This event is organized by Books & Bridges -- a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.

This event is made possible with support from Books & Bridges, Weller Book Works, and Utah Humanities.
