RECLAIMING CURIOSITY IN DIVIDED TIMES
Underwritten by: The Howard Miller Company
Mónica Guzmán is a bridge builder, journalist, and entrepreneur who lives for great conversations sparked by curious questions. She’s a senior fellow for public practice at Braver Angels, the nation’s largest cross-partisan grassroots organization working to depolarize America. Guzmán also hosts a live interview series at Crosscut and co-founded the award-winning Seattle newsletter The Evergrey.
Her book, I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times discusses the crisis of broken conversations among confounded people. It shows you how to overcome the fear and uncertainty that surrounds us to finally understand and learn from people in your life with different and opposing world views.
Guzman studied social and political division as a 2019 fellow at the Henry M. Jackson Foundation and researched how journalists can rethink their roles to better meet the needs of the participatory public as a 2016 fellow at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard. She was named one of the 50 most influential women in Seattle and served twice as a juror for the Pulitzer Prizes
This lecture will be broadcast live at the Dogwood Center from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Admission is free.
