Monument Lab LIve: “There’s Spirit in Everything”
Join Professors Salamishah Tillet (Rutgers University-Newark) and Grace Sanders Johnson (University of Pennsylvania) in a public conversation with Paul Farber (Monument Lab) for a live recording of the Monument Lab Podcast from Parkway Central Library.

Together, they will discuss haunts of history, living memory, and legacies of critical writing for African Diasporic women. Tillet and Sanders-Johnson will explore the approaches of storytellers, scholars, and artists who put forth efforts to commune, memorialize, organize, and heal across generations. 

This One Book, One Philadelphia event explores themes in the featured 2019 selection, Sing, Unburied, Sing, by Jesmyn Ward.
