Ochsner Innovation Stage

A New York Times and NPR Best Book in 2018, There Will Be No Miracles Here has the arc of a classic rags-to-riches tale, but stands the American Dream narrative on its head. If to live as we are is destroying us, it asks, what would it mean to truly live? Intense, incantatory, shot through with sly humor and quiet fury, There Will Be No Miracles Here inspires us to question--even shatter--and reimagine our most cherished myths. This fireside chat will be one to remember, as Josh Cox hosts Casey Gerald to share the life story that has captured national attention and inspired action during a time when the American Dream deserves to be reconsidered and reinvested in so that it can be realized again.
