(SAVANNAH, GA) The third season of “Creative Minds” Lecture Series brings leaders, experts and pioneers in a wide range of fields to share their wisdom in open, community-wide forums in Savannah. This annual speaker series is designed to stimulate dialogue and spark debate about important issues that affect us all.
Januarys lecture features a rare local appearance by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Edward Albee Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at 6:30p.m. Albee will discuss highlights from his literary career, followed by a question-and-answer session.
Edward Albee burst onto the American theatrical scene in the late 1950s with a variety of plays that detailed the agonies and disillusionment of that decade and the transition from the placid Eisenhower years to the turbulent 1960s. Albee’s intensely modern, often controversial plays have startled critics and audiences alike ever since, changing the landscape of American drama. He recently earned a Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement and is widely recognized as America’s greatest living playwright. The Pulitzer Prize-winning writer is best known for being creative force behind such important works as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Three Tall Women and A Delicate Balance.
