August 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Amy Speace grew up in Baltimore as the oldest child of four, Speace discovered music, words and a love of language early on. Her grandmother taught her to read at 3 years old by reading street signs. By 5 she was writing poetry, and by 8 she’d learned to play piano. Over the next decade, the family moved often, then Speace enrolled in Amherst College in Massachusetts. Not knowing what where to go after graduation, she took her professors’ advice and moved to New York City in 1991.
