Listening Party, Seattle

Join us for our next listening party, sponsored by the Kirkland Arts Center. We’ll premiere our newest episode, “These Two Lanes Could Take Us Anywhere", and discuss the story afterwards. Expect an evening of new friendships and meaningful discussion.

"These Two Lanes Could Take Us Anywhere" is about Ersin and Raffi, two men who grew up to be taught two very different stories about one very big moment in history: the death of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire. Over 4,000 miles of open road, riding two bicycles from Baltimore to San Francisco, we learn about Ersin and Raffi, and the real conflict that’s bubbling beneath the surface.

It’s a story about beliefs; about what we know to be true about ourselves and our history. Beliefs so strong, they shape the identity of an entire culture and nation. And it’s about when we begin to question those very stories…that uncomfortable space when we’re faced with another truth that contradicts our own.

Limited space available, so be sure to purchase your tickets beforehand. Tickets include drinks and snacks.
