There are many ways Gwendolyn Brooks is being honored this centennial year, but BrooksDay@Nite is the central celebration! This annual event takes place on her actual birthday. This year is even more special: a nighttime event featuring one hundred one-minute presentations from staged readings to visual art, dance to digital and music to memory, with munchies and so much more. Presenters include Haki Madhubuti, Patricia Smith, Jamila Woods, Nora Brooks Blakely, Quraysh Ali Lansana, Peter Kahn, Sketch N’ Tyme, Aurora Performance Group, and many more.
