Lecture: 6:30 PM

We are pleased to have as our guest speaker Prof. Thanasis Maskaleris, an author, poet, translator, and Founding Director of the Center of Modern Studies at San Francisco State University. He will lecture on the theme of his new book, The Terrestrial Gospel of Nikos Kazantzakis: Will the Humans Be Saviors of the Earth?, an anthology of passages--hymns to the Earth--selected from various books by Kazantzakis, centering on Nature and the workers of the soil.

The book is a powerful and poetic work that raises environmental awareness and calls us to compassionate action. It contains new translations from the Greek originals into English, some original poems by Professor Maskaleris, and an illuminating essay by ecologist, author, and film-maker, Michael Tobias. Included in the new book are 17 black-and-white photos--most of Crete;
and contributions from other Kazantzakis scholars and experts.

PLACE: The Hill, Malone Center, Loyola Marymount University, Lincoln Blvd. and LMU Drive
