Suzan-Lori Parks Town Hall Takeover

  • Town Hall Seattle 1119 8th Avenue Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

Town Hall invites you to take part in a special celebration of Suzan-Lori Parks, the first black American woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize in Drama and a MacArthur "Genius" Award-winner. First, she'll work on a piece, and you'll be welcome to watch her or join her in scribing your own projects. After this session, she'll take your question. For the second phase of the festivities, she'll present writing commissioned by Town Hall and talk about the processes of dialogue and collaboration. Finally, the Suzan-Lori Parks Band (Parks sings and plays guitar and harmonica) will spellbind your eardrums and mind with "Modern Soul, Black-Country, Psychedelic-Afro-Righteous sound." End the day energized and full of creative energy.
