“To seek, honor, and reflect on multiple viewpoints in order to broaden understanding and solve problems.”

This is the Sequoyah School’s definition of perspective, one of the seven “Habits of Mind,” which are set as goals for each student and member of their community. Habits of Mind are described as “best practices,” aiming to “challenge the mind, nurture the heart, and celebrate human dignity.”

On Thursday, March 6th, an illustrious group will gather to discuss perspective at the Sequoyah School Literary Salon. Participating are three Sequoyah parents:  2007 Pulitzer Prize-winner and Los Angeles Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times journalist and The Barbarian Nurseries author Hector Tobar, and Attica Locke, author of The Cutting Season. Alison Singh Gee will be a special guest as the panelists “explore the topic of perspective as it relates to their work as writers.”

Alison Singh Gee is an award-winning journalist whose work has been translated into eight languages and has appeared in Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, Marie Claire, and People. Her 2013 Hong Kong-India memoir, Where the Peacocks Sing, about finding love and home in unexpected places, was named National Geographic Traveler Book of the Month. She won the 1997 Amnesty International Award for feature writing for her AsiaWeek cover story about prostitution in Southeast Asia. (The Sequoyah School)
