This morning we will learn about a first-of-its-kind event to benefit female residents of the YWCA of the Greater Capital Region, based in Troy. The Arts Center will be hosting “Brava!” a fundraiser seeking to provide new bras to women at the YWCA.
The event will feature 12 talented writers from around the region who will read jury-selected poems and essays or perform songs and monologues on the subject of bras in their lives. The pieces will touch on the subject from many viewpoints and range from poignant to hilarious.
The idea for the November 13th event developed out of a conversation between author, editor and teacher Marion Roach Smith, who teaches memoir writing at The Arts Center and Malissa Pilette-McClenon, Director of Development and Marketing at the YWCA-GCR. They join us along with Sunny da Silva from The Arts Center of the Capital Region.
