15 Apr Kenyon College & the Kenyon Review
Catching Up on April – My visit to Kenyon College and the Kenyon Review earlier this month was a true gift. I met amazing students, gave a reading/talk to a generous audience, and shared the bill (science writing symposium) with Andrea Wulf. Wonderful faculty and Kenyon Review staff (like Sergei Lobanov-Rostovsky, Stella Ryan-Lozon, and Kirsten Reach) welcomed me. I also saw an old friend, Sean M. Decatur, who is now Kenyon’s president! And I had the pleasure to riding to and from the Columbus airport with another generous soul, @Wayne Uhrig, who showed me much of the physical and cultural landscape.
If you don’t know about this fine liberal arts college, please check it out. It’s Ohio’s oldest private institution of higher education. And its literary prominence dates to 1939, when poet and critic John Crowe Ransom founded the Kenyon Review.
