Join author, actress and transformational storyteller Echo Brown for a conversation about how her real-life experiences have fueled her mold-breaking fiction writing.

From her inspiring and award-winning one-woman shows to her first book, Black Girl Unlimited: The Remarkable Story of a Teenage Wizard, Brown infuses her work with magical realism while still addressing the realities of racism, abuse, addiction, depression and poverty.  Learn about the life-changing lessons that inform her creativity and bring questions to share.  Free and open to the community.  

An event of the Cleveland Humanities Festival – co-sponsored by the Cleveland Public Library and the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women.
