"Beyond Protest" with Paola Mendoza
Friday, April 27th
6:30 - 8:30 pm @ Big Grove Brewery
The Women's March is considered by many to be the largest single day mass mobilization in US history. It's estimated that more than three million people participated in small, medium and large acts of protest. Thus the #resistance was born.
But what now?
Paola Mendoza, co-founder and Artistic Director of the Women's March, keynotes a discussion moderated by Teen Vogue's Jessica Andrews focused on art, activism and social movements as part of the "Together We Rise" book tour.
"Together We Rise: Behind the Scenes at the Protest Heard Around the World", is a book that offers a front-row seat to one of the most galvanizing movements in American history, with exclusive interviews with Women’s March organizers, never-before-seen photographs, and essays by feminist activists.
Anyone who purchases a book from Prairie Lights Bookstore will be able to have their copy signed by Paola immediately following this event.
This event will serve as the kickoff event for Flyover Fest 2018. We're excited for this year's festival and we hope you can join us for this party and important conversation at Big Grove Brewery.
