Rev. Anthony Grasso, C.S.C., professor of English at King’s College, recently presented a paper entitled, “Luther’s Theology of the Cross: Redemptive Suffering and Vivian Bearing’s Death in Margaret Edson’s Play, ‘Wit,’” at the Northeast Regional Meeting of the Conference on Christianity and Literature, held at St. Francis College, Brooklyn Heights, N.Y.
This year’s conference theme was “Literature of Luther: The Individual, Freedom and Grace,” in advance of the upcoming 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Father Grasso’s essay was accepted for publication in a volume to commemorate the conference, “Literature of Luther: The Individual, Freedom and Grace,” by Wipf & Stock Publishers, Eugene, Oregon.
Father Grasso also had his poem accepted in this year’s “Poetry in Transit” series, sponsored by the Luzerne County Transportation Authority. His poem, “Time Warp,” will appear in billboard advertising on the LCTA’s buses through next summer. Prior to Thanksgiving, the group held an event to launch the appearance of this year’s posters with a public poetry reading by contributors at the Barnes and Noble College Bookstore in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
King’s College is a Catholic College sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
