CHICAGO (January 6, 2011) –Chicago Public Media (WBEZ 91.5 FM) continues its Off-Air Series with Parneshia, Anita, Audrey and Jane: The Creative Process of Writing at Victory Gardens Biograph Theater, 2433 North Lincoln Avenue, on Sunday, February 6 at 6:00pm.
Writers Anita Chandwaney, Jane Hamilton, Parneshia Jones, and Audrey Niffenegger will lead guests on an inspired exploration into the creative process of writing. However, unlike the typical “exploration into the creative process” this showcase will expose the personal challenges of four extraordinary artists as they peel back the curtain and reveal both themselves and the building blocks of their work. Hosted by Eight Forty-Eight's Alison Cuddy, the evening will include personal video, real-time artistic creation, and discussion about the context from which each of these writers construct their unique voices.
The event is produced in collaboration with Ragdale, a historic artist retreat north of Chicago where all four authors have been residents, and the Ellen Stone Belic Institute for the Study of Women & Gender in the Arts & Media. Admission is $15 general admission, $12 for WBEZ members, and $10 for students with a valid ID. Tickets are available at www.wbez.org/events.
