New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Scripps Presents is an electrifying mix of storytellers and artists, policymakers and musicians, and everything in between.

"We want people to come together to talk about issues and ideas - whether personal or political, historical or of the moments - and leave feeling inspired to keep on talking," says Corrina Lesser, artistic director of the series.

Scripps Presents concludes its third full year of programming with a season that explores the entire ecosystem of art and performance, from curation to exhibition, inspiration to scholarship. -

"What's happening in our communities, in politics, and in the arts? Our series is dedicated to exploring these questions from across the disciplines. We want people to come together to talk about issues and ideas—whether personal or political, historical or of the moments—and leave feeling inspired to keep on talking," says Corrina Lesser, artistic director of the series.

Making its West Coast debut, Hélène Berr, A Stolen Life, on loan from the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris, offers a poignant and rare glimpse into the Holocaust in Vichy France. Reynoldo Rivera discusses his photographs of underground Los Angeles with writer and filmmaker Chris Kraus, and choreographer Liz Lerman reveals Wicked Bodies, a performance inspired by sly, grotesque, sensual, and wildly creative women in literary and art history.

The conversation heats up with culture critics who expose, interrogate, and interpret contemporary topics. Netflix foodie Samin Nosrat of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat fame discusses the sustaining—and sensual—elements of food, and essayist Nathaniel Rich traces the history of failed climate policy and how we must act—before it's too late. Andrew Marantz of The New Yorker shares his thoughts on social media trolls on college campuses and the mainstreaming of fringe politics, while Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians, will talk about the immigrant experience, literature, and his crazy successful movie.

A full marquee of literati will also grace the mainstage, including Bettina Love, who will discuss her new book about revolutionizing education, We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom. Rachel Cusk hosts a rare Stateside reading of her international bestselling trilogy, Outline, Transit, and Kudos, and poets Sally Wen Mao, Morgan Parker, and Nicole Sealey discuss their latest collections.

Also happening on campus, Gaby Dunn of the podcast Bad with Money gently schools the audience on the "imperfect art of getting your financial shi*t together," while powerhouse rapper, singer, and writer Dessa discusses her memoir, My Own Devices: True Stories from the Road on Music, Science, and Senseless Love. Groundbreaking woman Mary Schmidt Campbell, art historian and president of Spelman College, shares her recent scholarship on the life and work of Romare Bearden.
