Location: Big Thought, 1409 S. Lamar Street, Suite #1015, Dallas, TX 75215
Big Thought in partnership with Arts & Letters Live
Join us for an insightful discussion of Casey Gerald’s book There Will Be No Miracles Here led by Byron Sanders, President and CEO of Big Thought, a nonprofit that seeks to close the opportunity gap by providing accessible educational programs for children of all ages.
In his memoir There Will Be No Miracles Here, Casey Gerald takes the arc of a classic rags-to-riches tale and stands the American Dream narrative on its head. A uniquely visionary witness whose life has spanned seemingly unbridgeable divides, Gerald reflects on his experiences in Dallas and Washington, at Yale, and beyond. There Will Be No Miracles Here was named a “Best Book of 2018” by NPR and the New York Times.
“Extraordinary. . . . Richly layered writing on poverty, progress, race, belief, and the actual American Dream.” —Booklist
The event is free and includes coffee and light snacks.
All participants will receive a copy of the book and free tickets to the Arts & Letters Live event at the DMA featuring Casey Gerald on Tuesday, October 1.
