The Black Box session returns with a live taping of the Humber School for Writers Love & Defiance podcast. Author, filmmaker and Humber School for Writers Creative Director David Bezmozgis will speak with a Humber student who has lived an extraordinary life and turned that experience into art. Does one need to live boldly and unconventionally to write? What conscious and unconscious decisions shape a life and make a writer?

In the spirit of NPR’s StoryCorps and This American Life, join us for an evening of intimate and revealing conversation. Dress code: black.
