The Black Mountain Institute

If you do not already know about the Black Mountain Institute, you need to look it up. blackmountaininstitute.org/ On October 14, the anniversary of candidate Kennedy's rousing speech in Michigan, the Institute hosted a splendid panel discussion featuring four writers who had been in the Peace Corps: Marnie Mueller, Mary-Ann Tirone Smith, Peter Hessler, and Paul Theroux. The organizer of the event, Richard Wiley, is also a distinguished writer and an RPCV. There will soon be a podcast of the symposium available on iTunes. It is well worth listening to.
