A special reading and discussion at Ron Robinson Theater featuring Leesa Cross-Smith, author of So We Can Glow: Stories. Moderating the discussion is OA contributor and author of A Few Seconds of Radiant Filmstrip, Kevin Brockmeier.
“Leesa Cross-Smith is a consummate storyteller who uses her formidable talents to tell the oft-overlooked stories of people living in that great swath of place between the left and right coasts.” —Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist
An installment in our weekly series, The By and By.
I listened to “Just Like You” by Keb’ Mo’ over and over again the same way I did when I was working at a coffee shop when I was in college. Keb’ is singing, “I feel just like you and I cry just like you and I heal just like you and I break down just like you,” and I'm wondering if people would actually live their lives differently if they listened to that song every morning before they went out into the world or interacted with other people.
