BLR BookTalk: Sarah Ruhl

Sarah Ruhl--acclaimed playwright, two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist,  MacArthur “genius” — tells the story of a ten-year medical and metaphysical odyssey after the left side of her face became suddenly and completely paralyzed. Her book, Smile, was a New York Times best-seller.

Sarah Ruhl joins BLR editor-in-chief Danielle Ofri for a fascinating conversation about her life, her career, and her extraordinary journey to reclaim her own face.
