Suffragette, socialist, “white trash,” foreign correspondent, sex abuse survivor -- University of Chicago alum Gertrude Beasley was indomitable and ferocious. Notwithstanding praise from Bertrand Russell and Ernest Hemingway, her brutally honest memoir was banned upon publication in 1925 and she was involuntarily committed to an insane asylum for life. Join Nina Bennett (AB 07) and Sourcebooks Publisher Dominique Raccah for a conversation about Gertrude Beasley, banned books, and what the publishing industry can do to elevate marginalized voices. Light refreshments provided—your RSVP helps us plan.

A livestream of the conversation will be available starting at 4:30 pm CDT here:
