    I would love to get complimentary tickets to the reading on Sunday. I live in Jersey City, NJ (just across the pond) and my Mommygirl passed away 9/23/12. I am a creative writer and this would be a wonderful way for me to celebrate the joy, love, laughter and angst that Julia Jones brought into my life by giving me life and celebrate with women about their reflections of being Mothers and Daughters.
