BLR Book Talk: Sarah Ruhl in Conversation with Danielle Ofri
“Ten years ago, my smile walked off my face, and wandered out in the world. This is the story of my asking it to come back. This is a story of how I learned to make my way when my body stopped obeying my heart.”
Sarah Ruhl — acclaimed playwright, two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, MacArthur “genius” — tells the story of a ten-year medical and metaphysical odyssey after the left side of her face became suddenly and completely paralyzed. Her book, Smile, was a New York Times best-seller and is now available in paperback.
Sarah will join Bellevue Literary Review editor-in-chief Danielle Ofri on January 18 for a fascinating conversation about her life, her career, and her extraordinary journey to reclaim her own face.Buy tickets/get more info now
