“What a beautiful fall! Everything shimmering and golden and all that incredible soft light. . . . Long live the beauty that comes down and through and onto all of us.” If, like us, you’re still a little haunted by Laurie Anderson’s elegant encomium to late husband Lou Reed, here’s your chance to hear more.
