Houstonians are invited to share in an evening of literary placemaking in celebration of their love for their own great city when renowned writers Phillip Lopate, Bill Monroe and Miah Arnold come together on Wednesday, February 6, at 7 p.m., at the Honors Commons in Anderson Library, University of Houston. This free event is part of the Houston Arts Alliance Folklife + Traditional Arts Program’s ongoing project Writing+C/Siting Houston, in partnership with the Cultural Enrichment Center at the University of Houston-Downtown and Houston Folklore Archive of the University of Houston.
Writing & C/Siting Houston is a collaborative project bringing together Houston writers, folklorists, historians and the like to share the special places that make the Bayou City unique. These pieces of literary placemaking celebrate community public spaces that promote happiness and well-being as well as provide inspiration with diverse insights into how Houstonians construct and connect with their home at a grassroots level. Event to be held in Anderson Library on the U of H Main Campus.
