  • Author Talk: Everything Here is Beautiful. Mira T.

  • Author Talk: Race Amity: America’s Other Tradition. William H. Smith’s book seeks to affect the public discourse on race, moving it from the “blame/grievance/rejection” cycle to one of “amity/collaboration/access and equity.” While most discussions focus exclusively on racist traditions, Smith looks at the always-present moral counterweight of close, loving friendship and collaboration: “the other tradition.” William H. Smith is an award-winning documentary producer and writer. Sunday, October 20 at 2:30 p.m.
