Dirty Laundry Reading at Avenue A Laundromat in NYC

Who’d a thunk that your local laundromat would be the place for a book reading/social event/classical music concert?

On a windy winter evening, Today’s Moms partnered with Grammy Award winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio to a night of Dirty Laundry: Loads of Prose at the Avenue A Laundromat on the lower east side of Manhattan.   The event is the brainchild of Emily Rubin, who has traveled the country – and some parts of the world –  to bring the beauty of books and music to the laundromat…  A perfectly warm place for such a cold night.  It was an especially sweet treat, because Sara usually performs in places like Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.

We shared a little bit of scoop from our book, Today’s Moms, on how to keep the romance alive with your partner after baby (the perfect subject for airing your dirty laundry) and afterwards Sara performed three pieces from her newest release, Suites For Solo Cello Vol. 1.  We had so much fun that we hope to do a similar reading/performance in the summer.
