Join Us For a Printers Row Edition of ‘The Conversation’

Five authors discuss "Writing Resistance" at Jones College Prep.

The Conversation — a new activist-minded literary series usually held at Women & Children First Bookstore — continues this month at a different location to coincide with Printers Row: Jones College Prep (Chance the Rapper’s alma mater) from 3 to 3:45 p.m. on Sunday, June 11. The topic is “Writing Resistance,” and the participants are Jeremy McCarter, Heath Fogg Davis, Geoffrey Stone, and Audrey Petty. The conversation will be moderated by event curator Rebecca Makkai.

The Conversation is a free, no-ticket event, open to all, but donations will be collected at the afterparty to fund a local nonprofit. Click here for more event details.

The series is curated by Kim Brooks, Rebecca Makkai, Zoe Zolbrod, Jana-Maria Hartmann, and Aleksandar Hemon, with Sarah Hollenbeck of Women & Children First.
