Patricia Portela, a participant in the International Writing Program and playwright from Portugal, will be giving a lecture on October 10 at 7:00 pm at the Iowa City Public Library meeting room A. Portela will be speaking about her work writing and curating installations about environmental issues and sustainability. Portela's current exhibit, Hortus, will be an interactive presentation about the micro– and macro–impacts that humans have on the environment. A salon at end of the installation will bring together community members to speak about sustainability and the future of the planet given the current trajectory of human impact.
