Year Five has been another big one at Writers Room! In addition to our regular programming at the Dornsife Center and on campus in MacAlister Hall, we organized HOME, a year-long symposium series supported by TD Charitable Foundation that taught us there’s genuine excitement and energy around intergenerational cooperative living, not only in our neighborhood but around the city. Our Canon TRIPOD writers-in-residence—drawn from the community, Drexel, Paul Robeson HS, and YouthBuild Philly—have been busy. While working together to tell the story of a changing city through writing and photographs, they also began training as community researchers for a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service that seeks to further illuminate issues surrounding affordable housing in West Philadelphia.
Please join us on Tuesday, June 4, 4:30-6:00PM as we celebrate our fifth annual book release and the Canon TRIPOD photo exhibition.
Reception at 4:30PM
Reading at 5:00PM
