Christian Poet Jill Alexander Essbaum to Visit Grand View

return

Grand View will host Jill Alexander Essbaum, an award-winning poet with a national audience, September 29-30. 
 
Jill is touring the United States speaking at Lutheran colleges, seminaries, and synod sites, reading from her work and speaking about arts and the Christian imagination.  The tour is part of The Lutheran Writers Project, a mission of Roanoke College, and is dedicated to engaging and renewing the imagination of the Lutheran Church, finding new ways to enable dialogue among writers, readers, teachers, pastors, and Lutheran institutions. 
 
Described as a "Christian erotic" poet, Jill's work may not be for the light of heart - but her words will leave listeners considering art, spirituality, and passion in a new light.
