Zeppos to speak at Barnes & Noble April 17

Stronger Arts/Stronger Cities, a yearlong series hosted by Barnes & Noble at Vanderbilt, will continue Thursday, April 17, at 7 p.m. with Vanderbilt Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos.

Each installment of Stronger Arts/Stronger Cities features a one-hour interview with leaders from Nashville’s arts community as well as local political leaders. The interviews are recorded for later broadcast on community access channel 19, Nashville Education, Community and Arts Television (NECAT).

The April 17 event is open to the public. Free parking will be available in the 2525 Garage behind the bookstore.

The goal of Stronger Arts/Stronger Cities is to advocate for all forms of art, with an emphasis on the literary arts. Each event is a collaboration among local artists. The backdrop for the evening is a gallery provided by the Tennessee Art League and is part of a yearlong exhibit that will change each month of the series. Flowers for each open filming are provided by local artist Perri Crutcher of OSHI Flowers, and local theater group KB Productions films the event.
