Five years ago this month, Scripps Presents made its debut. There wasn’t a seat to be found as iconic activist Angela Davis shared her wisdom and insight into a life dedicated to making political change. Yet, despite the hundreds hanging on her every word, it felt like a surprisingly intimate evening.
This season, we won’t be gathered together in Garrison Theater, but Scripps Presents’ commitment is stronger than ever: to create a space where joy and creativity can thrive, and where our community can come together to consider the most pressing issues of the day.
This spring, we continue our exploration of “The Future” with another quartet of literary programs in partnership with PEN America and the Strand Bookstore, featuring literary giants—such as Kazuo Ishiguro and Isabel Allende—and those defining a new canon, like Brandon Hobson, Rebecca Makkai, and Melissa Febos.
