The Midtown Scholar Bookstore is honored to welcome renowned historian and artist Nell Irvin Painter for a conversation and signing on her new book, I Just Keep Talking: A Life in Essays. This event is free and open to the public. From the New York Times bestselling author of The History of White People and Old in Art School comes a comprehensive new collection of essays spanning art, politics, and the legacy of racism that shapes American history as we know it. Along with Painter’s writing, this collection offers her original artwork, which shows a deft mind turning toward the tragedy and humor of her subjects. Pulling from newspapers, personal records, and original sketches, Painter’s artwork testifies to the dialectic of tremendous change and stasis that continues to shape American history. To enter the signing line, books must be purchased from the Midtown Scholar Bookstore. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event, or you may preorder a copy of the book for pickup/shipment. Signed books may not be available until after the event.
