Friday Fireside Chat with Dessa
July 9, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
And now for something completely different! I first learned about category-defying artist Dessa from her brilliant Hamilton-style rap song in honor of Janet Yellen, the first female secretary of the Treasury. She’s a singer, songwriter, author, speaker and just all-around fascinating person and I’m really looking forward to sharing an hour learning about her world. She has an acclaimed book “My Own Devices” and actively publishes new songs every Wednesday. And wouldn’t it make sense that someone I’d be talking to would write a rap song called “Terry Gross.” Join us – it will be a lot of fun!
