Engage With Your World: Find New in the Familiar

Date:Wednesday, September 16, 2020

Time:7:00pm8:00pm


During this two-part program we’ll search for the surprising and refreshing in familiar places, and the new and urgent in ourselves.

About this Event

This is a two-part virtual event, taking place on September 16 & 23 from 7pm – 8pm via Zoom.

These past months, it may seem that our personal worlds have grown smaller, or crowded, and our own lives nudged off course. In this one-hour program we’ll search for the surprising and refreshing in familiar places, and the new and urgent in ourselves.

Author Beth Kephart will lead an illustrated two-part ZOOM presentation and conversation on September 16th & 23rd from 7 pm to 8 pm based on her books—Flow: The Life and Times of Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River, Cloud Hopper, and the upcoming Wife|Daughter|Self: a memoir in essays.

She will inspire us to listen to/look for/document the sound of the rain, the roles we play in our lives, and the passions that keep us alive, among other imaginative prompts.

The second part of the event will be for creative sharing with the group.
