Jarrett Krosoczka LIVE on stage at Edmund Town Hall

Part literary event, part experimental theater— this remarkable evening will leave the audience laughing, thinking and emotionally moved.
Byrd’s Books will be selling copies of the Book at the event and Jarrett will be signing copies after the show.
New York Times-bestselling author Jarrett J. Krosoczka brings his critically acclaimed memoir to life with the cast of multigenerational readers including students from Danbury High School joining Jarrett for a live, unabridged reading. Their voices, projected artwork from the print book, music and sound effects from the award-winning audiobook will tell the story of Jarrett’s high school experience
as a camp counselor for seriously ill kids and their families.
