Colson Whitehead in Conversation

September 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Garrison Theater
231 E. 231 10th Street
Claremont, CA 91711 United States

Pulitzer Prize-winning and genre-defying literary phenom Colson Whitehead brings his new novel to Scripps. Inspired by the dark and disturbing history of a reform school in Florida’s Panhandle, The Nickel Boys is also a timely and essential meditation on contemporary America’s troubled times. Kima Jones, founder of Jack Jones Literary Arts, joins him for a conversation.

Each ticket includes a copy of The Nickel Boys.

There are a limited number of subsidized free Scripps student tickets available on a first-come, first-serve basis. These tickets are available by using a special student promotion code in EventBrite at the time of registration. Limit one per person. Email with questions.

This program is supported by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Fund and presented in partnership with the Office of Black Student Affairs.
