Lennlee Keep (“Dad Day: Death Is a Holiday”) is a nonfiction writer, filmmaker, storyteller, and mother of a teenaged boy named Dash. Her writing has appeared in the Rumpus and the Southeast Review, and her films have been shown on PBS, A&E, and the BBC. The ex-wife of a dead guy, she talks about grief more than most people are comfortable with. She is working on a memoir about addiction, grief, and a heart so broken it required surgery. That said, she is much funnier than the preceding two sentences might lead you to believe.
