We had a blast last Friday, October 26, during our first ever KPR Live Day, where we featured an entire day of live classical music from KPR's live performance studio and the Lawrence Public Library. If you missed it, here are some of the highlights. (Unfortunately, we had technical difficulties which prevented recording of the first and final performances.) Thanks for listening!
Ready to jump into the next book in the KPR Presents Book Club series? Join us in reading Sitting Pretty: The View from my Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body by Rebekah Taussig. Disability affects all of us, directly or indirectly, at one point or another. By exploring this truth in poignant and lyrical essays, Taussig illustrates the need for more stories and more voices to understand the diversity of humanity. Sitting Pretty challenges us as a society to be patient and vigilant, practical and imaginative, kind and relentless, as we set to work to write an entirely different story.
You can register for the event HERE. The event will take place on July 29, via Zoom and will feature a discussion with Taussig and our very own Kaye McIntyre. When you sign up, you should receive an email with the Zoom link for the event. If you don't see the email in your inbox, check your spam folder, or email Christy Imel at email@example.com.
You can buy the book online at Raven Book Store or check it out at your local public library.
Join the discussion ahead of time by joining the KPR Presents Book Club Facebook page. Meet fellow readers and enjoy discussing new novels together.
