No reservations required.Thursday, September 1, 6pm, Garrison Theatery r r e P s i r r a H a sMelis ter Citizen SisWhen it comes to race and politics, there are few as incisive as Melissa HarrisPerry. Moving effortlessly from Beyoncé to Black Lives Matter, feminism to Flint, Michigan, the former MSNBC host, editor-at-large at ELLE.com, and BET correspondent brings her insightful and provocative cultural critique to the Scripps Presents stage. This program is presented in partnership with Scripps Communities of Resources and Empowerment (SCORE), Scripps 360: The First-Year Experience at Scripps College, and the Laspa Center for Leadership at Scripps College. This program is made possible by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Endowed Speaker Fund.“One of our most trenchant readers of modern black life.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr.s e i t u C r e v o ft e The L awn e h t n o tt i LevLFeaturing the sultry vocals and lilting ukulele of Shirli McAllen, this Los Angeles–based quartet is beloved for its retro-infused tunes backed by upright bass, horns, and the occasional accordion. Picnic on the lawn with local food truck fare and end-of-summertime treats, and then make your way to the dance floor. This program is part of an ongoing series supported by Levitt Pavilions and Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch ’74.Friday, September 9, 6:30pm, Bowling GreenWednesday, September 14, 6pm, Balch Auditoriumr e k a B n o s l o h c i N Whether in fiction or non, Nicholson Baker’s varied but genuine obsessions— music, newspapers, literature, familial dynamics, video game culture—find their way into his smart, deft, and hilarious prose. In Substitute: Going to School with a Thousand Kids, he turns his eye to public education, detailing his spring as a substitute teacher. Writer and Pomona faculty member Jonathan Lethem joins him for a deconstruction of one of our most essential, and problematic, institutions.g n a h C Jeff ’ Be Alright We GonFor Jeff Chang, the need to address racial violence in America is an urgent necessity. In We Gon’ Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation, the author of the seminal history of hip-hop, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, and Who We Be: A Cultural History of Race in Post–Civil Rights America, delivers a poignant plea, an invocation for hope, and a thoughtful reflection on how activists and social media have emerged as the greatest catalysts for protest and, ultimately, change. USC’s Josh Kun, co-editor of Black and Brown Los Angeles, joins him for a conversation. This program is presented in partnership with Scripps 360: The First-Year Experience at Scripps College.Thursday, September 15, 6pm, Garrison TheaterTuesday, October 4, 6pm, Garrison Theatera s o j o n i Maria H ice o V r u o Y g OwninFrom the Puerto Rican comic book hero La Borinqueña to George Takei’s take on exactly who is an American today, the NPR radio program “Latino USA” delves into the perspectives that are often overlooked by traditional media. For the past 25 years, Maria Hinojosa has been the inquisitive mind and sage interlocutor behind these explorations. Hinojosa visits Scripps to talk with Southern California Public Radio’s Alex Cohen about the 2016 election and a career in media dedicated to diverse and revelatory storytelling. This program is presented in partnership with Scripps 360: The First-Year Experience at Scripps College and the Laspa Center for Leadership at Scripps College. This program is made possible by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Endowed Speaker Fund.e l p p a b a r C Mollyd o o l B g n i w a r D “A punk Joan Didion, a young Patti Smith with paint on her hands, a twenty-first-century Sylvia Plath.” —BooklistArt, sex, politics, and survival in our times: for Molly Crabapple, this has been her life’s work, and it’s taken her from New York City’s burlesque scene, to the torture trials in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the Occupy protests on Wall Street. In her memoir, Drawing Blood, she explores the role of the contemporary artist, all the while reflecting on the particular and very real challenges of being a woman working in a medium—and a society—where men and their work are often privileged. This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Humanities Institute.Thursday, October 6, 7pm, Garrison TheaterEnsemble Dal Niente Bessie Bartlett Frankel ConcertAdventurous and ambitious, Ensemble Dal Niente’s take on new music is redefining listeners’ aural experiences and pushing the art form in unexpected directions. The Chicago-based contemporary music collective will bring its 13-musician ensemble to Scripps to perform a punk-inspired, cutting-edge experimental program that celebrates four of the most innovative composers working today, including Deerhoof. This program is presented in partnership with the Bessie Bartlett Frankel Chamber Music Festival, the Scripps College Department of Music, J. C. Harper Lecture Funds, and the Joint Music Program of Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, and Scripps Colleges.Saturday, October 29, 8pm, Garrison TheaterThursday, November 3, 6pm, Garrison Theaterg n a u H e i EddRestaurateur, chef, and writer Eddie Huang’s memoir, Fresh Off the Boat, is a rowdy and hilarious take on race and assimilation in America. His story also became one of the first programs on a major network to feature an Asian American family. For Huang, all this success raised a question: “How Chinese am I?” His quest to find the answer is at the heart of his latest memoir, Double Cup Love. Rebecca Leher, co-host of the Southern California Public Radio/American Public Media podcast “The Mash-Up Americans,” will join him for a conversation. This program is presented in partnership with Scripps 360: The First-Year Experience at Scripps College and is made possible by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Endowed Speaker Fund.“Huang is determined to tease out the subtle and not-so-subtle ways in which Asian Americans give up parts of themselves in order to move forward.” —The New Yorker90Office of Public Events & Community Programs Scripps College 1030 Columbia Avenue Claremont, CA 91711presents
