SOLD OUT: Poetry, Music, & All That Jazz: An Afternoon with Carole Boston Weatherford

Sunday, Feb. 25, 2–4 p.m.

Due to an overwhelmingly positive response to this event, we want to inform you all that this is a free "first come, first serve basis," meaning seats are not guaranteed. We are planning on having an overflow in attendance, so make sure to arrive to the event early to get a good spot!

If the auditorium, which seats 300, is completely full, guests will be able to watch a stream of Carole's talk in the museum's Longleaf Room!

Speaker: Carole Boston Weatherford, Author and Critic
