EFGO Joining Forces with Dawn Nagle Gallery

EFGO Joins Forces with Dawn Nagle Gallery   EFGO is joining producing forces with Dawn Nagle Gallery. For those of you who don’t know the lovely and talented Dawn Nagle, she is an artist, writer, designer, musician – and my best friend since the 7th grade. (Seriously how could we not collaborate?) Especially since... The Southampton Cultural Center is home to not only a spacious 160-seat theater, where we'll perform EFGO on Saturday, June 25, 2022 at 8 PM, but also a beautiful art gallery -- where Dawn is curating a fantastic art show culled from New York-area artists.

A Story About the Woman Who Raised Me

By Every Family's Got One Guest Writer -- Annette Guarrasi The woman who raised the woman who raised me died on January 16, years ago. As many years have passed as the age I was when she passed. I’m humbled by how the years swiftly go. An immigrant woman... who boldly stepped foot in a new world during the Great Depression, she spoke little English, which made me think she was dumb but I was the fool to think this. She was wise but too humble to brag or insist. She knew things I may well never know. An [...]

Love, Hugs, Magic, and DNA

By Every Family's Got One Guest Writer -- Heather Osterman-Davis Ethan, just shy of 2, is thrilled to be on a plane. Outside of that, he has no idea why this trip is such a big deal. He doesn’t yet know that our family is complicated or worry about ownership and identity the way his father and I do. To him the world is simple: love, hugs, and magic. This isn’t a vacation. We’re racing to get to Odessa, Texas, before Jeannie, my friend Eddie’s mother, dies. Jeannie is genetically Ethan’s grandmother, though until now we’ve been reluctant to consider [...]

A Welcoming Family Home

By Every Family's Got One Founder -- Barbara Herel Have you ever noticed those families where a request for a last-minute sleepover, or friend to stay for dinner, or five extra people to come to the family holiday gathering wasn’t met with alarm and dread? But rather a genuine smile and an easygoing invitation of “Sure, the more the merrier.” Growing up, this was very much my family. It wasn’t that our house was big and rambling because it wasn’t. (It was, and still is, a cape.) And it certainly wasn’t because we were always guest ready, far from it. [...]
