Critical Conversations

Hosted by Nicole Ellis

About the Critical Conversations Book Club hosted by Nicole Ellis

Emmy-nominated journalist and filmmaker Nicole Ellis is passionate about sharing stories that challenge our thinking, broaden our perspectives, and inspire conversations about the issues that matter most. In this special three-part series, Nicole sits down with some of today’s most influential authors—Koa Beck, Clint Smith, and Anushay Hossain—to explore everything from gender equality to our country’s racial history. More vital than ever, these critical conversations have the power to lead us towards a more equitable future.

Books are just the beginning.

Join Nicole, our selected authors, and fellow readers for candid conversations and private events.
