Lust for Life - ODU LitFest: Still Sexy at 40

I want to live forever in wonder. The difference between me as a child and me as an adult is this and only this: when I was a child I longed to travel into, to live in wonder. Now I know, as much as I can know anything, that to travel into wonder is to be wonder. So it matters little whether I travel by plane, by rowboat, or by book. Or by dream. ~ Kathy Acker

In books we travel by dream into the bodies and souls of characters who live forever in the eternal present. Words bring forth beings whose love, pain, lust, and awe can sate our yearning. Join us this week as we dream, by means of the poems, essays, stories, plays, and photographs of seventeen world-renowned writers and artists.

~ John McManus & Kathy Fowler, 2017 Festival Directors
