Great Writers and the Great War: Literature as Peace Activism

When: Tue., May 22, 6:30 p.m. 2018

In the years following the end of World War I, many thought literature and the arts could help mankind avoid the deadly, disastrous warfare of the past. That proved to be merely a dream, but there are some intriguing artifacts leftover from peace activists and art advocates of the 1930s. Join author Charles Andrews for a discussion about “creative nonviolence and peacemaking through art” as practiced by British authors of the time. The talk, presented by Humanities Washington and the Washington State Historical Society, is part of those organizations’ commemoration of the 100th anniversary of “the Great War,” and should make for an enlightening evening.
