On behalf of Vice Provost Pedro de Araujo:

Hello,

Building on the annual CC Day of Service, this year the CCE is organizing an expanded “Week of Action” from September 29th – October 7th. During this time, the CCE is working to provide opportunities to inspire staff and faculty, as well as students, to engage in our community.

I would like to take a moment to encourage you to take advantage of an opportunity during this week to learn more about Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.

Gaylord Hall in the Worner Center

“The Unmaking of Tiger Lily: A Creative Work”

Tiger Lily, proudly erect, a princess in her own right . is the most beautiful of dusky Dianas and the belle of the Piccaninnies, coquettish, cold and amorous by turns; there is not a brave who would not have the wayward thing to wife, but she staves off the altar with a hatchet. (J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan and Wendy).

In this series of short fiction pieces, Tiger Lily begins questioning her name (or misnaming) and the very descriptions that call her into being. In doing so, she must navigate what it means to embody the desires, fascinations, and fears of Neverland’s inhabitants and guests-including that of the author and reader. Through her interactions with the novel’s characters, her account of her village and tribe’s simulated performances, and her nightly wanderings and daydreams, it’s possible the “never” of Neverland doesn’t mean never growing up, but for her, never truly existing in the first place.

Doors open – 11:45am
Talk begins – 12:15pm
Event concludes – 1:15pm
