2845 N Sherman Avenue, Friends of Lakeview Library – Madison Public Library, 1-2 P.M.
Join three Madison-area African American writers – poet Fabu, Sherry Lucille – Inspiring Destiny and Author Page, and playwright and novelist Catrina Sparkman – as they discuss their poetry and prose in relation to the work of three African American literary giants who also lived and worked in the Madison area during the 20th century: novelist Jean Toomer, playwright Lorraine Hansberry, and poet Sarah Webster Fabio.
Experience poetry, prose, and drama that will shed light on what it means to be African American in Wisconsin today, yesterday, and tomorrow through a multimedia presentation about the work and lives of these literary artists and their interpretations of race in Wisconsin.
