CITIES, RACE AND GUN VIOLENCE/CITIZEN BOOK CLUB
June 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
A discussion with award-winning New York Times bestselling author Alex Kotlowitz, whose latest book, An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago, chronicles one summer on the turbulent streets of The Windy City. “A powerful indictment of a city and a nation that have failed to protect their most vulnerable residents, or to register the depth of their pain,” wrote the New York Times.
In conversation with Citizen co-founder Larry Platt, Kotlowitz will talk about the scourge of gun violence and the craft and importance of storytelling. With a special guest appearance by best-selling author and podcaster Jo Piazza, producer of The Philadelphia Citizen’s Philly Under Fire podcast from the frontlines of the gun violence epidemic.
