Fairfield University’s signature lecture series, Open VISIONS Forum, presents “An Evening with Isabel Wilkerson” with best-selling author Isabel Wilkerson, the first black woman to win a Pulitzer Prize in journalism. In her presentation, Ms. Wilkerson will discuss “The Warmth of Other Suns,” her award-winning work of narrative nonfiction that tells the epic story of three people who made the decision of their lives in what came to be known as the Great Migration. “The Warmth of Other Suns” became a national best-selling book, a National Book Critics Circle Award Winner and a New York Times, USA Today, and Oprah Magazine Top 10 Best Book of the Year winner.

 

Introducing Isabel Wilkerson will be Fairfield University student Janice Herbert ’15. Following Ms. Wilkerson’s presentation, there will be an informal conversation and discussion with Yohuru Williams, Ph.D, Chair Department of History and Director of Black Studies, Elizabeth Hohl, Ph.D, history lecturer, and Philip Eliasoph, Ph.D, professor of art history and founder/moderator of Open VISIONS Forum. This program is made possible in part by the generous support of Sheaffer, CT Humanities, and Pequot Library. Moffly Media is the exclusive magazine sponsor for the 2013-14 Open VISIONS Forum series.
