Performing at Joe’s Pub for her Book Release Show!
This might go down as one of the best nights of Sarah’s life. Two packed shows at Joe’s Pub (one at 7pm, and one at 11pm) full of friends, family, and fans. A stage full of guest performers and super-talents, including Phil Kaye, Andy Suzuki and Tebukozza Babumba of “Andy Suzuki & the Method,” Arthur Lewis, and host Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz. Sarah’s new book, No Matter the Wreckage, is a collection of a decade’s worth of poetry. What a glorious night of celebration, poetry, music, and magic. (Photos by Jeffrey Kay!)

Performing with Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz at their Double Book Release Celebration in Seattle, WA!
Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz’s recently released, highly celebrated collection, “The Year of No Mistakes” and Sarah’s upcoming “No Matter the Wreckage” have an unusual story: Sarah is the editor of Cristin’s book, and Cristin is the editor of Sarah’s! Tonight’s show was a sneak-peak, one-time-only, pre-release performance of poems from Sarah’s up-coming collection (with an opportunity for folks to purchase exclusive advanced copies of the book!) as well as a chance to hear Cristin perform her gorgeous work. Plus, the whole night was hosted by the incredibly talented spoken word poet Derrick Brown, with surprise guest appearance by Phil Kaye! (Thanks to Cristin for the photo!)
