 Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich

Staceyann Chin has appeared on television and radio including The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN and PBS discussing issues of race and sexuality. But it is her extraordinary voice that launched her career as a performer, poet and activist. Stacyann is the author of the memoir, The Other Side of Paradise, and is currently touring MotherStruck, her critically acclaimed solo theater piece, directed by Cynthia Nixon, and produced by Rosie O'Donnell, chronicling her incredible experiences about motherhood, which opened in New York in December of 2015.

The event celebrates the LVEHC Andrew W. Melon Grant's emphasis on the intersection of diversity and storytelling. It will feature a community "talkback" on issues of diversity in the Lehigh Valley and the power of storytelling to address them.
