Book Launch: Anna Deveare Smith presents Notes from the Field
In conversation with Dr. Carla Shedd
Part of the Unbound series
Tickets $30 (book included) and $20 (event only)
Tony- and Pulitzer-nominated playwright Anna Deavere Smith takes part in an intimate conversation to celebrate the literary publication of her 2015 play Notes from the Field. Smith's acclaimed one-person play, now for the first time in print, includes the voices of a host of real-life figures who witness, experience, and fight the system that pushes students of color out of the classroom and into prisons. This urgent work brings together twenty voices—students and teachers, counselors and congressmen, preachers and prisoners—that shine a light on the school-to-prison pipeline.
