Kelly Corrigan, Author, Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I’m Learning to Say; Glitter and Glue; The Middle Place; Creative Director, The Nantucket Project
This program is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

Author Kelly Corrigan knows that words matter. Sometimes finding the right words to say in a difficult situation seems almost impossible, but the right words at the right moment can change everything.

In her new book, Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I’m Learning to Say, Corrigan recounts the conversations and experiences throughout her life that have shaped the way she connects and empathizes with family, friends and her community. 
Join master storyteller Corrigan, or as she's been called, “the poet laureate of the ordinary,” as she shares stories that serve to remind us that we’re all human and all deserving of compassion and understanding.
