Under the Gum Tree 8th Anniversary Celebration
Time & Location
About the Event
An amazing non-fiction evening with Under the Gum Tree. We had two great stories, and two great performances by Analise Langford (who read Stephanie J. Andersen’s “Like a Part of You”) and Eric Baldwin (who read Brett Riley’s “Dreaming in Stereo”). We were so glad to have the magazine’s founder Janna Marlies Maron, and editor Robin Martin with us. We’ll see you all next month, on Saturday November 9th for Lori Ostlund and Anne Raeff!
Enjoy this recording of Anlalise Langford's reading of Stephanie Andersen's Like a Part of You," an essay Andersen wrote as an homage to her breasts, her feminity, and her love for her family before she knew she would she would lose both of her breasts to a double mastectomy. The piece was published during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, less than two weeks after the mastectomy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roXYmYcyPJA&list=PLnlNlAz_TUh9Sb4Lb2uUVnAHEOLfmfQ6g&index=2&t=70s&fbclid=IwAR3CU2K20Yi0IIUyCBon-nYRakW3MgvnKj3--kDgFghMQ65TN6Diffp5ROk
