Greater Boston Writers Resist / Writers Persist

Join host Carissa Halston and a group of outstanding local authors at the Boston Public Library on Saturday, June 23rd at 1 pm for Greater Boston Writers Resist / Writers Persist. 

Carissa has been planning this follow-up to the initial 2017 Writers Resist event for months and it's going to be stellar. The event will feature readings by writers whose work investigates some of the most pressing political, cultural, and ethical issues of our time.

As Carissa said recently, "I believe there's power in coming together for a common good." I hope you'll join her and these writers as they work to break down the barriers between diverse points of view and build up our collective voice and power to effect change. 

RSVP on Facebook and learn more about Writers Resist/Persist.
