The Monti with Elizabeth Edwards

The last time The Monti came to The ArtsCenter, Lyndsay got to shoot it and raved about it to me. So when I saw The Monti on the calendar, I was excited! Five story-tellers, including Elizabeth Edwards, shared unscripted memories on the theme of “Mothers & Fathers”–photos are below (click “more” to get the full view). For future Monti events, click here.
