One Book, One Philadelphia GRAND FINALE Simulcast Event at Moore

Join us for a simulcast of the grand finale One Book, One Philadelphia event featuring author Edwidge Danticat and her collection of essays, Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work. Danticat is a Haitian American writer and MacArthur Genius Grant winner and her book takes its name from Albert Camus’s last published lecture in which he stated, “To create today is to create dangerously.” The work illustrates the struggle of making art in exile—and what it’s like to exist in a country constantly in conflict, where even the act of reading means taking a stand against oppression.

The simulcast is presented in conjunction with the Free Library of Philadelphia and their One Book, One Philadelphia program and is free for all to attend! For more information see the Free Library’s calendar of events.
