Author Jessica Handler moderates a panel of local activists, government officials, and attorneys impacting our communities and beyond, including: Nora Benavidez (civil rights attorney), Mary-Pat Hector (advocate and community organizer), Liliana Bakhtiari (district 5 city council candidate) and Janel Green (executive director of Georgia Alliance for Social Justice). This event is a part of 7 Stages National Endowment for the Arts Big Read program. This year’s Big Read book is Julia Alvarez’ In the Time of Butterflies.
The Big Read is a program run by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), designed to revitalize the role of reading in American culture by exposing citizens to great works of literature and encouraging them to read for pleasure and enrichment.
