Description In this intimate conversation, MacArthur “genius” and two-time Pulitzer finalist Sarah Ruhl is joined by writer-actress Mary-Louise Parker, winner of Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe awards, to celebrate the launch of Ruhl’s new memoir. In Smile: The Story of a Face, she explores her decade-long search for a cure for Bell's palsy following a high-risk pregnancy.
