Prof. Saxton-Ruiz opens ‘Great Books’ series Tuesday evening
The spring session of the Great Books Discussion Group series begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday (Jan. 24) at the Brown County Central Library, 515 Pine St. The opening night facilitator and presenter is Prof. Gabriel Saxton-Ruiz, who will discuss the landmark, 16th century Spanish novella The Life of Lazrarillo de Tormes. The book is described as a pioneering work of anti-establishment satire that was banned by the Spanish Crown. The presentation by Saxton-Ruiz is the first of five monthly (second Tuesday of every month through May) book talks by Humanistic Studies faculty members at UW-Green Bay. We’ll have the full lineup in our next issue.
