92nd ST Y: The Art of the Memoir, SUN. FEB 15, 7:30pm
I am honored to be bringing my Art of the Memoir to the 92nd St. Y, with an all-star cast. This started last year when I reached out to Kathryn Harrison and Phillip Lopate, asking if they’re like to appear on an Art of the Memoir panel with me. Both said yes, but we couldn’t come up with a date. That’s when I approached the 92nd St. Y. They were so warm and nice. Jennifer Giunta Hausler brought the whole thing together, and I thank her for that. Anyways, hope to see you there in the flesh, or in spirit. Thanks, David Henry Sterry
