But nothing beats being in the room

Thursday, April 28 – 7:30pm
Livestream only: Walker Talks!
Walker Brents III
On Hermes, Mythic Guide of Souls

Walker Brents III muses on the presence of divinities in poetic thought processes, implicit and explicit in the myth of the god Hermes.

Walker addresses the mysteries of the poets & the gods, the philosophers & the folktellers in a livestream from Bird & Beckett on the last Thursday of each month, August through May… This evening will be his last talk of the season before hitting the road for the summer.

Donate to help us reward Walker for his heroic efforts of imagination, study and interpretive craftsmanship. At the appointed hour, find his talk livestreamed on our YouTube channel or Facebook page.
