FREE | Our Time is Now | An Evening with Stacey Abrams

June 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

An evening with Stacey Abrams - Our Time is Now

What it is

A discussion with voting rights activist, Stacey Abrams, to celebrate the launch of the paperback version of her New York Times bestselling memoir, Our Time is Now.

Why we think this event is hot

Stacey is the bomb-shizzle when it comes to fighting for voting rights. She has been one of the most visible U.S. politicians in recent years because of her work to boost voter turnout in Georgia, including in the 2020 presidential election, where Joe Biden narrowly won the state, and in Georgia’s 2020–2021 U.S. Senate election and special election, which gave Democrats control over the Senate. Abrams was the Democratic nominee in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, becoming the first African-American female major-party gubernatorial nominee in the United States.

This event is not just hot, it sizzles.

About the event

An Evening with Stacey Abrams
06/22/2021 – 7:00pm to 8:00pm EDT
Creative Nonfiction Reading
Virtual author event hosted by Picador and Gibson’s Bookstore.

Stacey will be joined by broadcast journalist, Cari Champion, for this Zoom Webinar to discuss the urgency of ending voter suppression and how we can empower citizens to use their power to shape the future. The conversation will be followed by moderated audience Q&A.

What is Stacey’s book, Our Time is Now, about?

“In this insightful memoir, Stacey Abrams charts her journey from failed political candidate to history-making voting rights activist. Back in 2018, as a gubernatorial candidate, Abrams turned out more Democratic voters than Georgia had ever seen, and though she lost the race, she scored a significant victory against the state’s business-as-usual political machine. In Our Time Is Now, she investigates the fraught history of Black Americans exercising their voting rights in the American South—and explains how she started a robust program to get the young and disenfranchised to the polls. This uplifting story is an invaluable blueprint for anyone hoping to bring fairness and equity to the political process in the U.S. With the American political landscape more volatile than ever, this audiobook gives us the tools to get involved in shaping the future.”

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
