This is a story that explores the wide range of human emotion as if from behind the intimate curtain of a dance studio; the meaning of family in all its diverse varieties; determination; the struggle to understand ourselves and the behavior of others; the hope that comes from compassion and acceptance; and resilience — how pursued dreams become, over time, simply the way life is if you stay true to yourself. With humor, compassion, a sprinkling of irreverence, and a sharp eye on contemporary life, Sanelli explores, through Lucy, what it means to be a daughter, a teacher, and a friend at a moment in her life when she is forced to approach life as a lesson in forgiveness in an attempt to understand why haters hate.
Mary Lou Sanelli, author, speaker, and dance teacher has published seven collections of poetry and three works of non-fiction. Honorariums include an Artist Trust GAP Award, Poetry on the Buses, A Jack Straw Writers Award, A Seattle Bumbershoot Festival Book Award, The Skagit River Poetry Festival, and a GoodReads Notable Book Award.
Mary Lou Sanelli will be joined by dancers from the Northwest Ballet Theater who will include a bit of dance and movement as part of the event!
