Kansas Weather in Life, Literature, and Photography
January 6, 2018, 1:30 PM CT
Presented by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg
When it comes to talking about the weather, we have a lot to say in Kansas, and for good reason: not only is our weather some of the most dramatic in the world, but our relationship to weather shapes how we see ourselves. This presentation opens with weather chaser Stephen Locke's vibrant images of Kansas weather paired with poetry by contemporary Kansas writers inspired by the drama that unfolds in the Kansas sky. Audience members will have an opportunity to share their own weather-related stories and striking images through a short 10-minute writing prompt that will lead into a discussion about how the weather influences our lives, our understanding of the natural world, and what it means to be a Kansan.
