Introducing Sandra Evans Falconer...
Authors note on her latest project
In 1993, when Sandra was living in Baltimore, she began writing a series of narrative poems about her relationship with her brother, Steven. In April of 1996, Steven passed away at his home in Philadelphia. Bonni Goldberg, Sandra’s mentor at the time, asked her: How can we remember our loved ones except in our memories and in our dreams?
Gradually, Sandra’s poems changed into a stage play titled, The Lucky Spot Dance. At the heart of the dance, where memory lives on, and and the lucky spot shines, is a central question: What do you do when you love someone you can’t save?
