UW-Green Bay faculty on Door County Reads Fest Panel Feb 12, 10:30 am via ZOOM
Michael Perry writes, “To wallow in cynicism, and to dismiss things like hope and faith, is cowardly and unoriginal.” While his stories chronicle his struggles in life and love in rural Wisconsin, they also brim with optimism. In short, his stories make us feel good.
How does he do this? Can reading Perry improve our mental health?
Join a psychologist, a humorist, a dramatist, an idealist, and a literature scholar in a discussion (moderated by a pragmatist) about the emotional impact and craft of Perry’s storytelling.
