AHA! Festival: Reveal with Al Letson
On Saturday, June 9 at 11am in the Westfield InsuranceTM Studio Theatre, ideastream will participate in the Arts & Humanities Alive! Festival in partnership with Cleveland State University. In its second year, the AHA! Festival will fill downtown Cleveland with a weekend of words, music, dance and art.
As part of the AHA! Festival, ideastream will present Al Letson, host of the Center of Investigative Reporting’s Reveal. This popular radio program and its award-winning journalists are known for revealing the “story behind the story.” As the host of Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, attendees will witness his 1-man show. Find out how Letson found himself lying on top of a far-right provocateur, shielding him from violence at a 2017 political protest in Berkeley. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear him present this story, what led to it – both personally and politically – and reveal how similar encounters affect a nation.
Letson, a playwright, poet and actor, will take festival attendees on a compelling journey through Reveal’s signature journalism.
