This spring we’re rethinking our world—from the body to the body politic.
Cecile Richards will share perspectives from more than 12 years as the president of Planned Parenthood and give insight into her new initiative, Supermajority, which focuses on women’s activism. Choreographer Alice Sheppard will challenge our assumptions about which bodies can dance and how. And social justice activist Sonya Renee Taylor will educate us on her groundbreaking The Body Is Not an Apology movement.
Indie rock icons Liz Phair and Ani DiFranco will talk gender in the music industry, and Gaby Moreno will help Scripps celebrate the 50th anniversary of Chicano Latino Student Affairs with a special concert in Garrison Theater.
New Yorker essayist Jia Tolentino will discuss her acclaimed collection, Trick Mirror, with novelist and Mary Routt Chair in Creative Writing R.O. Kwon; National Book Award-winner Sarah M. Broom and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey will reflect on their shared literary preoccupation with New Orleans; and Susan Orlean will read and discuss her latest, The Library Book.
