Book & Bridges: Benjamin Park

Oct 26, 2017, 7:00 pm

Join Books & Bridges for a lecture and discussion led by Alan Keele, Emeritus Professor of German at Brigham Young University on October 26th 6:30-8:00 pm at Weller Book Works on the topic of "The Story of Helmuth Huebener: The Conscience of a Nazi Resister."

Alan F. Keele has a PhD in German language and literature from Princeton University and is a professor of German at Brigham Young University. He recently published In Search of the Supernal: Pre-Existence, Eternal Marriage, and Apotheosis in German Literary, Operatic, and Cinematic Texts (Münster: Agenda Verlag, 2003).

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.
