The Community Library

The Community Library’s Hemingway Writer-In-Residence, Sarah Springer, Emmy-nominated producer, documentary filmmaker, and creative, will be in conversation with Diana Muñoz, the Library’s communications intern who is working on diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and community conversations.

Expanding on Springer’s 2020 TEDx presentation, “How to Become a True Agent of Change,” co-presented with women-in-film activist Naomi McDougall Jones, Springer and Muñoz will discuss the ways popular media trains our brains to think about minorities, how this conditioning affects our perceptions and treatment of each other, and what it will take to change that.

Outdoors on the Libary’s Donaldson Robb Family Green on 4th Street. Bring a low-back lawn chair or blanket and join us for their conversation. *Masks are required.*
