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 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
