This week, the focus is on the American poet, e.e. cummings. This is one of those things the Museum does well, and one of those programs that other organizations, perhaps libraries in particular, can steal some ideas. One connection to WWI is by taking a look at literary figures that in turn have a connection to the war. Of late, the Museum has had programs that focus on J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
If you’re in the Kansas City area this Saturday this may be a good program to attend, and if you haven’t seen the Museum before, take it all in.
