Join us at the Suffolk Art Gallery for a deep dive into the career of Shonda Rhimes, producer of the hit Netflix television series "Bridgerton." Our guide is Dr. Michaela D.E. Meyer, professor of communication at Christopher Newport University, and co-editor of the recent volume, "Adventures in Shondaland: Identity Politics and the Power of Representation." Dr. Meyer will speak on the acclaimed television producer, her production company Shondaland, and her many popular creations, including "Bridgerton." After the talk, Dr. Meyer will be available to sign her book, which will be available for purchase.
