"Give me a place to stand," Archimedes famously said, "and I will move the earth." Join us as we celebrate diversity, determination, finding a place to stand from which to speak and be heard, and the many ways writers and artists change the ways we see the world.

Janet Peery and Katherine Jackson, 2015 Festival Directors
