PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Peggy Wallace Kennedy & Donna Wilhelm in conversation with Krys Boyd of KERA

Peggy Wallace Kennedy, seen as the "symbol of racial reconciliation" (Washington Post), is the daughter of one of America's most virulent segregationists, former governor of Alabama and presidential candidate George Wallace, who ultimately renounced his views at the end of his life. Wallace Kennedy's powerful memoir The Broken Road is both timely and timeless and speaks to change, atonement, activism, and racial healing. A Life of My Own follows Donna Wilhelm's path from a lonely child in an immigrant boarding house to corporate wife and mother, to middle-aged divorcee, and finally her reinvention into a philanthropist, arts advocate, and humanitarian. This evocative memoir reveals her unique upbringing, diverse work history, family challenges and journey of personal growth with unbridled honesty and will inspire others to take ownership of their stories.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In partnership with The Black Academy of Arts & Letters

In September 1969, a church deacon shuffles into the courtyard of a housing project in south Brooklyn, pulls a .45 from his pocket, and in front of everybody shoots the project's drug dealer. The reasons for this desperate burst of violence and the consequences that spring from it lie at the heart of Deacon King Kong, the first novel fromJames McBride since his National Book Award-winning The Good Lord Bird. As the story deepens, it becomes clear that the lives of the characters affected by the shooting-caught in the tumultuous swirl of 1960s New York-overlap in unexpected ways.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
National Book Award winner Colum McCann's most ambitious work to date, Apeirogon is a tour de force concerning friendship, love, loss, and belonging. Bassam Aramin is Palestinian. Rami Elhanan is Israeli. They inhabit a world of conflict that colors every aspect of their lives. Their worlds shift irreparably after their young daughters are killed- Abir by a rubber bullet and Smadar the victim of suicide bombers. When Bassam and Rami learn of each other's stories, they recognize the loss that connects them and attempt to use their grief as a weapon for peace.
