This Friday, we look forward to a virtual conversation between Director Paul Erickson and Chris Phillips, author of "The Hymnal: A Reading History" (2018). An extended historical treatment of the hymn as a read text and media form—rather than a source used solely for singing—this book traces the lives people lived with hymnals, from obscure schoolchildren to Emily Dickinson. Phillips outlines connections between reading, education, poetry, and religion. Register to join us: myumi.ch/gjgzR
