Thalia Book Club: Sarah Ruhl, Smile: The Story of a Face


The author and MacArthur Award-winning playwright behind the Pulitzer Prize finalist In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play) sits down with Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) to discuss her extraordinary memoir. In a series of piercing, witty, and lucid meditations, Ruhl chronicles her 10-year journey starting with her Bell’s palsy diagnosis and the transformation that followed.

"With poignancy and power, Smile helps us all to find ways of expressing our internal truth. It helped me to both learn and grow."— Gloria Steinem

Symphony Space is committed to the health and safety of its artists, staff, and audience. The author's books will be available for purchase, but there will not be a book signing at this event.
