LECTURE: 6:45 p.m. PARENTS DINING ROOM
Elie is the author of two books. His first work is called The Life You Save May Be Your Own: An American Pilgrimage, published in 2003. It was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award and won a PEN/Martha Albrand Award for First Nonfiction. His newest work, Reinventing Bach (2012), traces the fascinating relationship between Bach interpreters and new recording technologies, telling the story of how musicians of genius have made Bachs music new in our time.
Elie has also authored essays and articles for The Atlantic, The New York Times, Commonweal, and other periodicals. He is also the moderator of the Georgetown's Faith & Culture Lecture Series, a series of public conversations about the interaction of religion, art, literature, and society.
Paul Elies Athenaeum talk is sponsored by the Gould Center for Humanistic Studies and will be held in Parents Dining Room.
