How do stories orient us to the world—either consciously or unconsciously? Dale Griffith, a former Barrington High School teacher, and his current colleague, Dr. Rebecca Schorsch, explore the understanding of religion in literature. The presentation is called “Alternative Narratives in Our Contemporary World: Secular Egotism vs. the Lonely Man of Faith.” With dramatizations and discussions of Albert Camus’ The Fall and Joseph Soloveitchik’s The Lonely Man of Faith. General Admission: $10.
