On the evening of January 19th and 20th, several of our girls read their original poetry and shared their writing advice to a crowd at The Matrix theater. The audience had gathered to attend the staged reading of the play "A Shift in Gravity," and were treated to some inspirational words from our girls before the show began. "A Shift in Gravity," by award-winning play and screen writer Kathleen McGhee-Anderson, featured Golden Globe and Emmy Award Winner S. Epatha Merkerson (Law & Order), Screen Actors Guild Award Winner Peri Gilpin (Frasier), Daniel Mitura, and Amin El Gamal. In addition to being a great night, all proceeds from the show benefited WriteGirl!
