1:00 PM Lecture: Stories of Conflict at Home and Abroad How far must writers go to tell the story of war, to expose the racial divide in our country, or to explore the reality of life along our border? How do the risks they face shape the writers and the stories they bring us?

We'll hear about this and more from award-winning war correspondent and host of "All Things Considered" Kelly McEvers; poet, playwright and journalist Al Letson of "Reveal"; Iraq veteran and memoirist Brooke King; and KPBS' "Fronteras" reporter Jeanne Guerrero. Join them and moderator Justin Hudnall of "So Say We All" and the nationally recognized series "Incoming" for an afternoon of conversation and insights followed by refreshments and a chance to speak personally with all of our speakers. This is part of the annual Writers Symposium by the Sea.

8:00 PM Music: Alsarah & the Nubatones Born in Sudan, raised in Yemen, and now based in Brooklyn, Alsarah is not only a gifted musician and singer but is also a self-proclaimed practitioner of East African retro-pop. Alsarah & the Nubatones was born out of many dinner conversations between Alsarah and percussionist Rami El-Aasser about Nubian "songs of return," modern migration patterns and the cultural exchanges between Sudan and Egypt. Soon the project expanded to include Armenian American oud player Haig Manoukian and French-born, Togo-raised bass player Mawuena Kodjovi. Since their first show in 2011, the group has performed nationally and internationally at many prestigious festivals and venues to audiences varying in age and ethnicity, proving that soul crosses all cultural and linguistic barriers.
