A Cultural History of Notre-Dame de Paris
May 28, 2019 | 5:30 PM
On April 15th, 2019, the world watched astonished as Paris’s beloved Notre-Dame narrowly survived a raging fire. Join Dr. Eileen Yanoviak to explore the cultural history of this iconic work of French Gothic architecture-from construction and Revolution, to reconstruction and popular imagination. The centuries-old church is a testament to the endurance of faith, culture, and artistic achievement despite a rapidly changing world. Please note: This discussion will take place in the auditorium at the Floyd County Library. For more information or to register, click here.
Dr. Yanoviak will also host a book discussion on May 18 at 10:30 AM featuring The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo at the Carnegie Center for Art and History. Brunch is included.
