NEA Big Read at the Ackland will focus on Advice from the Lights by author Stephanie Burt.

The Ackland and its partners will host six book discussions of Burt’s Advice from the Lights with discussion facilitators from our community.

This discussion will be facilitated by Carolyn Allmendinger, the Ackland’s Director of Education and Interpretation, and Sarah Bloesch, UNC Department of Women and Gender Studies.

To use Zoom, registrants will need access to an internet-connected computer, smartphone, or tablet with a built-in microphone.
