Central Coast Writers and the Literature of Personal Development

Through lectures, discussions, and the reading of excerpts, we will examine the best that has been thought and said by the West Coast artists of personal growth and liberation.  The goal is to throw light upon the relevance of their work to our own lives and to the originality inherent in our own contemporary experiences.  In a world, increasingly divided “into tiny colonies of the saved,” the visionary literature of the Central Coast can serve as a healthy antidote to the dispiriting stereotypes of our age—while deepening our ties to the land, our community, and one another. 

This class will meet on Tuesday, February 27, March 6, and April 10 from 6:10-8:00PM
