Thank you Courtney Maum, Mira Jacob, Ted Thompson, and Tiphanie Yanique for making today’s debut novelist panel at Bryant Park’s Word for Word so inspiring with their honesty, generosity & wit.
And thank you to the great audience. Especially the little girl who asked the best question of the hour: “What do you feel when you are writing?”  Our answers: love, comfort, connection, safety & joy.

Photos from the last Sackett Street Writers’ Reading Series at BookCourt, featuring Bret Johnston (REMEMBER ME LIKE THIS), Cristina Henriquez (THE BOOK OF UKNOWN AMERICANS), Kevin Clouther (WE WERE FLYING TO CHICAGO), and Julia Fierro (CUTTING TEETH, SSWW founder).

We also raffled off a limited-edition Remember Me Like This skateboard, modeled Cusack-style by Bret Johnston!

"For writers, imagination is our greatest resource; we are compelled by the worlds we create and that’s why we struggle so to capture them in words. But every now and again, it can be helpful to step away from the computer screen, close the notebook, get your butt out of the chair, and look around, to let your imagination reset, open, and begin again."
