From Mozart to Mos Def

Not just anyone can vividly trace a thread weaving through a zebra’s stripes, a partly crumbling brick wall, a Jackson Pollock painting, a Mozart piano sonata, Dr. Seuss’ “Fox in Socks,” Gwendolyn Brooks’ “We Real Cool,” and even a rap duet by Mos Def and Slick Rick. CU-Boulder’s Adam Bradley can, and the students along for his literary road trip seem to relish the ride. That’s the point.
