We're happy to make our venue available to Penguin Books for their celebration of Joshua Bennett's The Study of Human Life (2022). This combination book party/reading will celebrate a bold new work that weaves together reflections on such subjects as abolition, Malcolm X, Black ecological consciousness, and the promise of parenthood.

Online Attendance: Livestreaming available via the WPR YouTube Channel.
