The event is free, although a $5-$10 suggested donation to help fund future events is much appreciated. Donations will be collected at the door, or you can send donations through Venmo to @Open-LoveNY (#8555).

Vita’s popular writing helped keep Virginia and her husband Leonard’s publishing business afloat while Virginia was inspired by Vita to write Orlando. Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes.
