Event Description

This interactive virtual program offers a compelling antidote to our current isolation and uncertainty. Drawing from James Bowey's documentary photo exhibit, When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Stories of Refugees in America, presented at the library beginning in February, James will discuss his unique approach to storytelling as a means of awakening empathy and deepening human connection. His work uses contemporary neuroscience and social psychology research to create a “language of empathy” for considering the global refugee crisis, as well as our personal and civic responses to the challenges of Covid-19. Join this event for timely insights on how empathy can empower each of us and renew our imaginations to the possibilities of hope, justice and human connection.

Must register to participate in this live, interactive presentation. It will take place on Zoom and you will receive a link to participate by email.
