Ned Sublette, the 2011 Patrick Henry Fellow at the C.V Starr Center for the American Experience, returned to the Egg to give an encore performance as he neared the end of his fellowship at Washington College.
Acclaimed poet and biographer Daniel Mark Epstein offered an intimate and nuanced look at Bob Dylan, the legendary singer-songwriter and the most important lyricist America has ever produced. In his talk, Epstein framed Dylan against the background of four seminal concerts performed over four decades and explored the larger context of the artist’s life, from his meteoric rise as a young folksinger through his reemergence in the 1990s and his role as the éminence grise of rock and roll today. Washington College student Tim Meren ‘13 ended the evening with a performance one of his favorite Bob Dylan classics.
