It’s impossible to predict, but infinitely fascinating to consider. What is the future of women’s leadership? Storytelling? Comedy? Politics? How will we tackle issues like institutional racism and immigration? And how will we build and sustain community, especially now that the world we’ve known for so long—our work, relationships, our patterns of life—are changing every day?
Today, we’re delighted to share a preview of a few of the tremendous writers who will help us explore this theme. These programs, presented in collaboration with PEN America’s PEN Out Loud series and the Strand Bookstore, include Scripps Presents alumnae like Roxanne Gay, Claudia Rankine, and Yaa Gyasi as well as new faces, like Pod Save the World’s Ben Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize winners, Marilynne Robinson and Ayad Akhtar, and novelist Alexander Chee.
Tickets for all programs are available now!
