I'm looking forward to the conversation next week with @jzfriedman for a @PENamerica virtual event -- https://pen.org/event/the-common-room-campus-demonstrations-and-covid19/
Yes, there's covid, racial injustice, misinformation. But there's also @cindi_leive @astradisastra @TheWayWithAnoa @_alynnbryant chatting w/ me about democracy & storytelling. Check out our new @PENamerica series w/ these all-star women. Happy Friday y'all.https://pen.org/campaign/what-to-expect-2020/
