Alan, Andre, and Arno

Alan joins author Andre Dubus III and photographer Arno Minkkennen in a lively discussion and demonstration of intellectual property and the creative arts.  Held as part of an ongoing series commemorating Charles Dickens and his visit in 1842 to Lowell, Massachusetts, the presentation took place on April 5, 2012 at UMass Lowell, where all three panelists serve as professors. A video of the event is now available, and includes Alan performing his cover of Blondie's "Dreaming" as well as one of his original compositions, "Softly, Like an Amen" from the Birdsong repertoire.
