Consider This with Eli Saslow - La Grande screening

April 3, 2024 | 7:00 p.m. | HQ

112 Depot St., La Grande OR 97850

Join Oregon Humanities staff on April 3 at 7:00 p.m. in La Grande for a live screening of Consider This with Eli Saslow.

Eli Saslow is a national reporter for the New York Times. His recent reporting has focused on homelessness, inequality, and opioid addiction in Arizona, California, and Oklahoma. He lives in Portland. This conversation—the last in our 2023–24 Consider This series about fear and belonging—will explore how intersecting crises of housing, drug addiction, and mental health affect people and communities across the country. We'll also discuss the stories we tell about these crises. From what perspectives are they told? And who are they for?


This live screening is free of charge. No tickets required.
