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.
Featuring: David Amarel, Martha Crawford, Lorraine Dusky, 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.
