What are the public humanities? Why do they matter? 

In other words: Why are we all at a book festival right now? 

Come join in a lively discussion with Bill Egginton, Anand Pandian, and Danielle Evans, three local scholars and writers, moderated by The Ivy Bookshop’s owner, Emma Snyder, that digs into questions around the vitality of humanities in public life, the role these disciplines can and should play in our communities, and ways that universities can support this work.
