Thursday evenings in March! Join us for a series of virtual readings, screenings, and conversations to celebrate the essays included in Cookie Jar 1: Home is a Foreign Place

Each event will take place between 7-8PM ET via Zoom, and will consist of a presentation by the author(s), followed by a conversation between the authors and the series editors. 

For information on each talk, visit the Cookie Jar website.
