A reading by students of Kitsi Watterson
  • Wednesday, December 5, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Kelly Writers House, 3805 Locust Walk, Arts Cafe

Come hear students from Kathryn Watterson’s classes: “Finding Voice: Perspectives on Race, Class & Gender” (English 145) and “Learning from James Baldwin” (English 481). Over the course of the semester, these students have examined myths and lies about race, class, gender, and sexuality embedded in our cultural experiences, as well as in systems of power and privilege. They’ve also been inspired in their own writing by the brilliant intellectual, spiritual and literary legacies of James Baldwin. Listen to these young writers speak their truths in raw and candid stories and essays: Lily Giordano, Yoonji Bridget Lee, Anika Ranginani, Lauren Tappen, Elaine Jia Yi, and Ruoyan Wang; Terri Wood Allen, Elliot Bones, Rebecca Gelfer, Rory Harte, Tanya Jain, Elizabeth Johnston, Skye Lucas, Misha McDaniel, Wesley Neal, Madison Sanders, Alexandra Schuh, and Sarah Spencer.

All events take place at the Kelly Writers House, 3805 Locust Walk, and are free of charge. If you have any questions or would like further information, please e-mail, or call 215-746-7636. For a more detailed Writers House calendar,  visit
