Mary Lou Quinlan shares The God Box: Sharing my mother's gift of faith, love and letting go
Thursday, March 7, 2013, 7:00 p.m.
at Glucksman Ireland House NYU
Mary Lou Quinlan
When Mary Lou Quinlan’s beloved mother, Mary Finlayson, dies, her family is left bereft – until Quinlan finds her mother’s “God Box,” stuffed with tiny notes written by Mary, asking and praying for everything from the right flooring for her daughter’s new home to a cure for her own blood cancer.
Through a combination of readings from her New York Times bestselling book (The God Box: Sharing my mother’s gift of faith, love and letting go) and scenes from the accompanying one-woman play (“The God Box: A Daughter’s Story”), Mary Lou Quinlan explores the laughter and tears of the story of a family in love, in loss and in triumph.
