The current discourse on the Baby Boomer generation is dismissive. “OK, Boomer” is a phrase meant to brush off the Facebook ramblings of someone named Nancy with a flower as a profile picture. But, just as with every generation, there are Boomers who are empathetic and thoughtful. “The Boom Project: Voices of a Generation” is an anthology meant to “illustrate the varied experiences of writers who were born, or have lived in, the Ohio River Valley between 1946-64.” And some of the authors of that anthology will be discussing those experiences during this virtual, Filson lecture. Maybe you’ll discover yourself in the much-maligned Boomer. “This anthology will feel universal to anyone who has ever searched for identity, connection, and a place to call home,” organizers write.
