E.J. Dionne, Jr is a bestselling author, twice-weekly political columnist for The Washington Post, a frequent commentator on politics for NPR and MSNBC, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, visiting professor at Harvard University and professor at Georgetown University. He’ll be at the J in conjunction with the release of his eighth book, Code Red: How Progressives and Moderates Can Unite to Save Our Country, which comes out just one week before his visit.

Code Red breaks through the political noise and challenges conventional wisdom, combining reporting and analysis with a realistic look at political possibilities. Dionne provides a blueprint for uniting progressives and moderates through shared goals of social tolerance, economic justice and democratic values while addressing the impatience many people feel with past failures. And he lays out a path forward, because at this point in the country’s history, change can’t wait.

A juxtaposition of social the justice climate of yesterday and today interpreted through poetry and dance.

How have our views on issues like race, inequality, climate change, gender, and immigration changed through the course of history? How have poets interpreted these views? The Indiana Writers Center has combed their online literary journal, “Flying Island,” and other sources for work from the recent and not so recent past to juxtapose with contemporary writing submitted by Central Indiana residents in an anthology released during the festival. Dance Kaleidoscope dancers will create a visual comparison of these selections through original choreography presented at the JCC on Sunday, November 10th. Performance attendees will also have the opportunity to create their own “blackout” or “book” poems in a guided art-making experience with Indianapolis Art Center teaching artists. Through this program we hope to explore the evolution of our community’s ideas, values, and revolutionary thoughts.

Parking in the JCC parking lot is free. If parking in the back lot, enter through door 5. If parking in the front lot adjacent to Hoover Rd., enter through door 3.

RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 9.

Presented by JCC Indianapolis, Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council, Dance Kaleidoscope, Indiana Writers Center, Indianapolis Art Center, and PEN America.
