About the ShowA serialization of Michele Carlo’s memoir about growing up as a redheaded Puerto Rican in an Italian/Irish neighborhood in 1970s NYC. We’ll be reading a couple of chapters from the book each week along with a little music from and commentary about the specific timeframe—and also feature some creative folk of my acquaintance talking about our work and the difficulties, challenges and importance of having our stories included and heard.
