City Arts & Lectures
Jia Tolentino and Jenna Wortham
This week, two phenomenally smart observers of culture, Jia Tolentino and Jenna Wortham. Tolentino is a staff writer at The New Yorker and author of the essay collection “Trick Mirror”. Wortham co-hosts the New York Times podcast “Still Processing”. On May 6, 2020, what was to be an on-stage conversation at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco ended up being a far more intimate exchange about the logistics and emotional realities of life in self-isolation. The two spoke by videoconference, discussing their new relationships to productivity, an urgent desire to do good in the world, and some of the lighter aspects of their pandemic lives – such as reality television.
