Writing Hidden Histories of St. Louis
Four noted writers passionate about the St. Louis region share their process and insights from recent projects: journalist Sylvester Brown, Jr., memoirist Vivian Gibson, scholar/curator Jasmine Mahmoud, and poet/educator Treasure Shields Redmond. Exploring hidden, forgotten, or still unfolding stories, what challenges has each writer faced? What kinds of creative approaches do writers use to fill in gaps, to bring readers into important but neglected, often painful histories? What techniques of attention, documentation, and imagination can help us capture the history we are living through right now?

This event is presented in collaboration with the American Culture Studies department in celebration of a new anthology of essays on the St. Louis region emerging from the Material World of Modern Segregation initiative, published in a dedicated issue of Washington University’s The Common Reader: A Journal of the Essay (forthcoming fall 2021), Iver Bernstein and Heidi Kolk, co-editors. Summer Writers Institute director Sylvia Sukop is one of the publication’s contributing essayists and will moderate the discussion.

Event admission is free, but registration is required.
