Delivering the Closing Keynote at the People of Color Conference in Tampa, FL!
Sarah is honored to be the closing keynote speaker at this year’s SCLC & POCC Conference. More info here!
Performing at UT Austin in Austin, TX!
Sarah will be performing in the SAC Ballroom at UT Austin at 7pm. The event is FREE for all students and faculty with a current UT ID. There will also be a separate line at the event for the GENERAL PUBLIC, and they will be allowed in after students have entered! (In other words: the event is open to the public, but students have priority entry. So if you are not a UT student, you should come early/on-time and prepare to stand in line a little bit because we don’t know how many “public” seats will be available after all the students are seated.)
Important: UT Austin isn’t letting Sarah sell books or merch at the show. INSTEAD, you should make sure to order your PERSONALIZED & SIGNED copy of No Matter the Wreckage from BookPeople ahead of time, and then you will still get your copy in time for the holidays! Order your book here and remember to include “SIGNED COPY FOR ______” in the comments field during checkout. (And put in the name of the person it should be addressed to!) OR you can go buy your copy in advance and bring it with you to the show for Sarah to sign in person. But she won’t have books for sale with her at the show!
Doors open at 6:30 pm, and the show starts at 7:00 pm
