What would happen if John Donne or George Herbert journeyed to Middle Earth by way of San Francisco, took musical cues from Jerry Garcia and fashion tips from Bilbo Baggins, and rode back on a Harley?

Come hear noted British poet and songwriter Malcolm Guite read and sing his own modern-day metaphysical poems and psalms – in a program made to harmonize with the Weatherspoon Art Museum’s exhibit “Shouts of Joy and Victory: Jewish and Christian Imagery from the Collection.”

The event is Thursday, Sept. 11, 6:30 p.m.

Malcolm Guite serves as a Cambridge parish priest, and as chaplain at Girton College at Cambridge University, while supervising students in English and theology. He is a scholar of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and the British poets, and is also a poet and singer-songwriter. This program is sponsored by The Atlantic World Research Network, with special thanks to Dr. Christopher Hodgkins.
