Elaine Welteroth

Thursday, July 11, 7:00 p.m.

An Arts & Letters Live and Second Thursdays Collaboration

In conversation with Brandon Maxwell, award-winning designer and Project Runway judge

Throughout her life, Elaine Welteroth has climbed the ranks of media and fashion, shattering ceilings along the way. Her new book More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say) is a riveting and timely memoir that unpacks the lessons Welteroth learned through her journey to becoming the youngest ever—and only second African American—editor-in-chief at Condé Nast at the time. A deeply personal coming-of-age tale, More Than Enough is about a young woman reckoning with race, family, friendship, and heartbreak, and learning to look inward—and upward—for strength.

Welteroth will be interviewed onstage by fellow Project Runway judge and winner of the 2016 CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear designer Brandon Maxwell
