Panelists blend creative and critical analysis in a celebration of the work of Gwendolyn Brooks. The daughter of two writers–Henry Blakely and Gwendolyn Brooks–Nora Brooks Blakely founded Brooks Permissions, a company which manages her mother’s body of work and promotes its continuing relevance in the 21st century. She is joined by Quraysh Ali Lansana, author of Revise the Psalm: Work Celebrating the Writing of Gwendolyn Brooks, and poet Melissa Green.
