Beth Kephart: Stories of the River
Advance registration is required.
The Schuylkill River has run through the dreams and ambitions of Philadelphia and her guests—the walkers, the rowers, the philosophers and politicians, and scientists.
Philadelphia-area writer Beth Kephart has been writing the river for more than a decade—in an “autobiography” called Flow: The Life and Times of Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River, in Centennial-era novels, in works of journalism and in essays. Kephart will share river-rich scenes of her own before opening the conversation to participants to share river stories of their own.
