Phyllis Lawson

When: Wed., April 20, 7 p.m. 2016

When four-year-old Phyllis Lawson is sent to live with her grandmother in Alabama, she has no idea what to expect. She needed a miracle, and that miracle took the form of a tattered old quilt—a family heirloom stitched together from the clothes of her grandmother's loved ones, telling the tragic stories of their lives and deaths. Grandma Lulu quilted as a way to bring healing into the world, and created something even more powerful: an impenetrable bond between Grandmother and Granddaughter.
