Extended Families

Viola Davis and Bhavesh Patel perform two spellbinding stories about what it means to be a family.


Guest host Jane Curtin presents two stories featuring unconventional families. A young girl is raised by a group of warmhearted “mamas” in Shay Youngblood’s touching coming-of-age story, “They Tell Me, Now I Know,” read by Viola Davis. In Jai Chakrabarti’s “A Small Sacrifice for An Enormous Happiness,” a forbidden love affair and a marriage of convenience promise two different futures. The reader is Bhavesh Patel.
