I had the honor of being part of a reading by contributors of Bronx Memoir Project volume 3. It took place at The Huntington Free Library, over 125 years old. http://huntingtonfreelibrary.org/
Many of the contributors read a slice of memoir. The pieces were moving in many ways. When I read mine, I felt the room soooo with me. That feels so validating. Later, a number of people came over to hug me. Real hugs, not the air waste-of-time kind. The warmth of many Bronx people is beautiful. Photos were taken and I hope they get shared soon. I look forward to seeing them.
If you are curious to read the stories (they range from 1 to 5 pages each), and if you’d feel good supporting the Bronx Council on the Arts, you can use this link to purchase your copy https://www.bronxarts.org/programs/the-bronx-memoir-project/.
