6 p.m.–8 p.m.
American Mythology Through Poetry and Prose
American Mythology is back!
This class will investigate the formation of American identity as told by writers. We'll dissect even more creative works, like poems made into minstrel shows that still permeate pop culture, rock songs that rewrote race relations, books that fed Fake News, and other ways artists have shaped the nation.
This class will deconstruct the popular literary canon and its hidden origins by examining multigenre work praised within it. We'll also write poems challenging our own mythologies and redefine our relationships with the books that built America.
All levels welcome!
