What a Difference a Year Makes

Michele Carlo has always been determined to find the”silver lining”; in anything. But has the “CoñoCarajo”; pandemic finally been what’s tougher than she is?

Michele is a native New Yorker, a Nuyorican, a natural redhead, and remembers when a slice of pizza (and the NYC subway) cost 75 cents. As a storyteller, she has performed across the U.S., including Joe’s Pub, RISK! live shows and podcast, and the MOTH’s Mainstage in NYC; and has appeared on NPR (“Latino USA”) and PBS (“Latino Americans of NY & NJ,” “Stories from the Stage”). She is also the author of the NYC-set memoir “Fish Out of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks.” www.michelecarlo.com
