adoption letters: unsealed
***UPDATE: (as of Fri. May 16, 2014) This event is SOLD OUT. If you’d still like to attend email lynne (at) lostlit.com to be placed on a wait list.***
Lost Lit is thrilled to team up with Land of Gazillion Adoptees to bring you a unique spin on discussing adoption and its many shades of grey. Featured guests intimately invested in the adoption community will use the letter format to express their point of view. It’s our hope that with the co-mingling of these diverse voices, a new/different perspective about adoption will emerge for all attendees.
Featuring: David Amarel, Martha Crawford, Lynne Connor, Kathryn Joyce, James Lane, Andy Marra, Joy Liebrenthal Rho, John Sanvidge. Kevin Vollmers, the mastermind behind Land of Gazillion Adoptees, will be emceeing the night.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! We want the audience to be fully engaged and involved in this discussion. After the presentations, there will be time for everyone to write their own letter to someone or a group of people and then have the chance to read their letter aloud. Since the act of writing and reading your thoughts aloud on such a loaded topic (adoption) can be intimidating, paralyzing even, we invite audience members to write their letters at home (yeah like HW), bring them in and then volunteer to read the letter aloud. OR, there will be an option to place letters in a real time mail box to be read aloud by one of the presenters.
