“When my father died, it was like a whole library had burned down.” Laurie Anderson
The writer, Nat Hentoff, was my father. He passed away at the age of 91 on January 7, 2017. My father was a mensch. He taught me telling stories was important; saying your truth out loud was imperative; standing up for others had to happen; maintaining integrity was seamless; words that lead to actions matter. His life and work also had a profound influence on the work of Circus Harmony.
On March 17, there will be special show presented at The .ZACK Theater titled Defying Gravity and Social Injustice: A Tribute to Nat Hentoff. Chaired by Ken and Nancy Kranzberg, it will be an amazing evening of inspirational circus arts and great jazz featuring current and former flying children from Circus Harmony. I hope you can attend.
Nat Hentoff’s Daughter and Artistic/Executive Director of Circus Harmony
