Author Carmen Acevedo Butcher To Speak at Homecoming Nov. 7
Author and literature scholar Carmen Acevedo Butcher will speak at Samford University’s Live at the Library program Saturday, Nov. 7, at 9:30 a.m. The public is invited free of charge to the event in Samford Library’s second floor reading room.
Butcher’s topic will be “Coming Home to Christ in a Facebook World: Our Friend, Teacher and God.”
She is the author of books on medieval literature, Christian mystics and linguistics, including A Little Daily Wisdom and Hildegard of Bingen: A Spiritual Reader. In April, Shambhala Publications released Butcher’s translations of The Cloud of Unknowing and The Book of Privy Counsel, two classic medieval works on Christian contemplative prayer.
Butcher is an English professor and Scholar-in-Residence at Shorter College in Rome, Ga.
