Description: 

Think the Humanities are dead? Think again. Organizations such as the Library as Incubator Project and That Camp are mixing technology, art and performance with the hero's journey, attracting new audiences and elevating classical literature to the peak of social status. Hear from Princeton Public Library about how they are using their NEH challenge grant to make the humanities come alive through Sonnet Slams and Revolutionary Readings and discover how you can reintroduce the humanities to a generation hungry for their timeless message.
