TueNight Live: Glowing on a Brooklyn Rooftop [PHOTOS]

Could there be a more beautiful night? On June 27 we took our latest event, GLOW, to the rooftop of the co-working space and sponsor Industrious Brooklyn. The sky was, indeed, glowing. All photos are by the wonderful Kalya O’Donoghue.

Hosts Karen and Margit mingle with friend (and TueNight contributor) Lauren Young.

Over 80 people joined us! Our biggest crowd yet.

 Margit introduced our esteemed batch of beautiful storytellers.
Carolyn Edgar kicked things off with her poignant (and very relatable) essay bemoaning the difficulty of pleasing both her kids and herself at the same time.
Amy Silverstein ducked in between TV interviews to read from her moving, beautiful new book The Glory Was I Had Such Friends.
We were rapt…
Then Alice brought down the house, as she does, with her narration of a very non-romantic night of edible ingestion.
We took a pause to eat some of the delicious food provided by Brooklyn locals R & D foods and Alta Calidad.
We gave ourselves a little “glow” from BeautyCounter.
And of course we drank rosé. Duh.
Copies of Amy, Alice and Stephanie’s books were available for sale.
  We mingled some more.
And drank delicious Hint Water provided by our sponsor.
We do a lot of mingling.
And embracing.
And picture taking. And then we returned for our next readers.
Diane Di Costanzo described the indignity of hot flashes — er, power surges.
Kim France offered up a juicy, adulterous excerpt from her soon-to-be-published memoir.
Stephanie Gangi described one particular, luminous photo — and what it means to her.
From Margit, Karen, Adrianna (who couldn’t be there that night!) and the TueNight crew, thank you for coming and thanks to our sponsors Hint Water, Industrious, R&D Foods and BeautyCounter. See you at our next TueNight Live!
