Panel & Conversation with Natasha Stagg, Andrew Durbin, & Joni Murphy moderated by Kaitlin Phillips

Friday, May 20 from 6 – 8 PM

Magenta Plains is pleased to welcome Natasha Stagg, Joni Murphy and Andrew Durbin for a reading and discussion on Friday, May 20 from 6 – 8 PM. The three authors will each present an excerpt from a recently published or forthcoming piece of writing, which will then be followed by a discussion moderated by Kaitlin Phillips. Working at the intersection of memoir, criticism, poetry and fiction, these writers explore themes of self identity in a culture that increasingly exposes our inner desires through social media and the internet. The discussion will be followed by a reception with refreshments.
