What a fantastic night of laughter and heartbreak. Sally Lehman’s anthology Bear the Pall about the loss of a parent really brought the house to tears many times and made people laugh at others.

Three word phrases to spell out painful facts, a redefined Hell…This collection penetrates numbness without stinging. Every contribution here is sacred and lovely.”


Here are a few photos from the night:
