these events enrich our (currently virtual) lives. Join us!
The CommunityEd Speaker Series is brought to you in partnership

On October 27, listen in as award-winning author Florence Williams explains the science behind why nature makes us happier, healthier, and more creative, and suggests how we can make time for the natural world during the pandemic. Williams is a fellow at the Center for Humans and Nature, a visiting scholar at George Washington University, and a contributing editor at Outside Magazine. Learn more about Florence Williams on her website. Register via Zoom here.
Tuesday, November 10 promises to be a special evening, when our very own Upper School English Teacher, Sunisa Manning, talks about her debut novel A Good True Thai. After a brief reading and interview, Manning will visit breakout groups for mini book-club discussions (get those questions ready!) and, finally, rejoin the full group for an audience-wide Q+A and reflection. Pre-order the novel here! Register via Zoom here.
Rachel Kushner, author of The Mars Room, says, "Sunisa Manning understands deeply
and innately that politics is woven through the strongest and most ambitious fiction,
just as it is through life itself."
