As part of the 215 Festival, I am honored to host a public Q&A with Echols to discuss his memoir, memory and what life after death looks like to a man who says he was going blind from two decades spent staring only at the walls a few feet away from his face.
2pm. Free. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St. 215festival.org
