26apr7:00 pmOff-the-Page: Creative Conversation Series With Temple Crocker and Jen Grow


Event Details

The Ivy Bookshop and the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance are excited to launch a new conversation series that pairs artists and writers whose work overlaps in a unique way. Join us for the inaugural conversation that pairs writer Jen Grow and theater artist Temple Crocker as they discuss issues of memory, loss, and identity.

Temple Crocker is a theater artist and teacher whose recent work investigated, embodied, and shared the stories of older adults living with dementia and memory loss. With this work, Temple hopes to provide an alternative to the cultural narrative that defines aging as a steady process of loss and degeneration, instead revealing the imaginative potential at every stage of life.

Jen Grow is an award-winning writer of fiction and nonfiction. In 2015, she made her first foray into a cross-disciplinary collaboration that resulted in My Father’s House, a series of photographs with a personal essay about the dismantling of her father’s house after his death, which explores ideas around loss of home, identity, and history.

The 2018 Off-the-Page conversation series is co-organized by the Ivy Bookshop and the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
