Workshop Description

In 1990, Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Geisel) published Oh, the Places You’ll Go!.

But when we’ve lived long enough--oh, the places we’ve been. What do our memories of those places have to tell us? How, for example, might our childhood home feel to each of us now?

In this six-session workshop, we’ll look back on some of the places we lived and visited and worked in. We'll draw on Northrop Frye's concept of 'the four locations' to think about the spirit of time and place, but, more importantly, we’ll reflect on the person we were and the person we've become.
