Telling Others’ Stories (Masks Required)

A long-shot political campaign built from scratch, an anti-crime squad policing the immigrant suburbs of Paris, a sweeping cross-country investigation into the many ways of gender expression, a deep and compassionate dive into the lives of military veterans struggling to reconcile wartime and post-war lives—these are powerful works of journalism and social science made even more vivid by the graphic novel format. Jess Ruliffson (Invisible Wounds), Sofia Warren (Radical: My Year with a Socialist Senator), Didier Fassin (Policing The City: An Ethno-Graphic) and Rhea Ewing (Fine: A Comic About Gender) bring us to the frontlines of human experience with their insightful and visually arresting reporting. Moderated by Heidi MacDonald, Editor-in-Chief, The Beat.


Masks are required to be worn for this event.
