Arts & Letters: The Journey You Must Take

6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27

In this conversation moderated by writer Jenny O’Connell, authors Maggie Downs and Katherine E. Standefer discuss their debut books, each of which tells the story of a journey they understood deep down that they must take.

In Braver Than You Think: Around the World on the Trip of My (Mother’s) Lifetime, Maggie Downs backpacks around the world to visit countries her mother — struck with early-onset Alzheimer’s — cannot make it to herself. In Lightning Flowers: My Journey To Uncover the Cost of Saving A Life, Katherine E. Standefer travels to mines across Africa trying to understand whether her potentially-lifesaving implanted cardiac defibrillator might have caused loss of life along its supply chain.
