April Meeting: Art and Social Justice

The April meeting of the Border Crimes chapter of Sisters in Crime will be 11 a.m. Saturday, April 2, at the Antioch Branch of the Johnson County Library, 8700 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Merriam.

Speaker Lauren McGill is an artist, writer, and printmaker. Lauren is a graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute and is the communications and programming organizer for the Inter Urban Art House in Overland Park, Kansas. She has worked on the annual “Art in the Stacks” at the Antioch Branch. “My work sheds light on social justice issues that affect minority populations by using art to tell the stories of both individuals and groups,” she say.

The meeting is free and open to the public. Members are invited to stay after the program to discuss committee plans for our August 6 workshop with Rhys Bowen.
