One World Ideas x Action with Karla Cornejo Villavicencio and Quiara Alegría Hudes

Getting through it with books

April 30, 2020 in Virtual Event

One World’s mission has always been to find books for readers who want to rethink the past, understand the present, and imagine new futures. Ideas x Action is our virtual conversation series, taking One World’s mission into a new space at this crucial moment.

Our next event features Karla Cornejo Villavicencio, writer, essayist, and author of The Undocumented Americans, a book praised by Selena Gomez, Eileen Myles, and The New York Times alike, and Quiara Alegría Hudes, a Tony Award– and Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright, and author of the forthcoming currently untitled memoir. They will be in conversation with One World executive editor Elizabeth Méndez Berry about their work, and how art and storytelling can be forms of disruption, revelation, and nourishment in challenging times.

To navigate this unprecedented time, we need all the help we can get. That means sharing knowledge, staying connected, keeping each other’s spirits up—and learning a lot about video chatting.

To do our part, we’ve done the latter, and we’re so happy to introduce our new Virtual Events Series. Through a number of online-only events each week, our authors will share information from their books—and their hearts—to help you get through the coming days. Whether you need cooking inspiration, tips on how to form new habits, a weekly dose of mindfulness, or just a fulfilling book club chat, we hope these events will fill your mind and ease your load.
