Shake Your Windows and Rattle Your Walls: The Protest Poetry of Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan’s 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature was somewhat controversial. In this workshop on April 13, Amy Herrick will discuss some of his protest songs, analyze his literary style, and look at some of the arguments for and against his status as Nobel Laureate. And, of course, we’ll listen to a couple of his songs, since no day is really complete without a little Bob in it.

Currently a school librarian, Amy Herrick taught high school English for many years, during which she used any excuse to use Dylan’s poetry to enrich her curriculum.
