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?
We’re excited to announce programs including FiveThirtyEight‘s Nate Silver; Harvard historian and New Yorker staffer Jill Lepore; and podcaster extraordinaire Dylan Marron (of the smash show Conversations with People Who Hate Me) who will talk about the role that empathy and humor can play in reconciling our divergent cultural perspectives.
Our perennially engaging @Noon series will include Scripps alumnae Alison Saar ’78 talking about her new Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery exhibition Mirror, Mirror; creative writing dynamos Kendra Atleework ’11 and April Dávila ’99 reading from their newly published books; and Scripps faculty Martha Gonzalez with members of the Grammy Award-winning Quetzal invite us to a collective songwriting workshop.
Tickets are also still available for a quartet of previously announced programs presented in collaboration with PEN America’s PEN Out Loud series and the Strand Bookstore (including Scripps Presents alumnae like Roxane 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!
