May 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
How to live with difference—not necessarily in peace, but with resilience, engagement, and a lack of vitriol—is a defining worry in America at this moment. The poets, fiction writers, and essayists (plus one graphic novelist) who contributed to Welcome to the Neighborhood don’t necessarily offer roadmaps to harmonious neighboring. But they do approach the question of what it means to be neighbors, and how we should do it, with open minds and nuance. Readers include Gail Mazur, Robert Pinsky, Daniel B. Johnson, David Blair, Christine Fort, Steve Brykman, Lloyd Schwartz, Fred Marchant, Sonya Larson, Peter Campion,and the editor, Sarah Green.
