Kelly Corrigan

in conversation with Matt Nathanson



Thanks for spending some time with us yesterday. Felt good to be together. Here are a few notes + links for any follow up you might want to do:

Poets: Ellen Bass and Olivia Gatwood

My big book recommendations for right now are Sapiens and Black Swan.  They both take the long view and might offer some historical context to help us breathe through what will surely be a painful time for so many. 

Lots of love to you all,
