From Urban Wildlife To Evolution Debates

Date: 
Sunday, August 11, 2013 - 9:00pm

JAMES BARILLA is an assistant professor in the MFA Program of the University of South Carolina where he teaches creative non-fiction and environmental writing. Some years back he moved to Columbia, South Carolina, a large city.  He wanted to transfer the small yard into a wildlife Eden where he could grow fresh vegetables and fruits yet also be a sanctuary for wildlife. And therein lies a tale as Barilla became interested in urban wildlife and what it means to co-exist with it and what happens when wildlife moves into a city.

Vocalist Madeleine Peyroux started out busking on the streets of Paris. Today she’s an acclaimed performer whose voice recalls radio’s Golden Age no matter what the tune.
