Heather Quinlan is a documentary producer and director whose first short film, “O Brooklyn! My Brooklyn!” was called “Charming … an endearing way of making an old poem more relevant” by The New York Times, and her feature-length documentary on the New York accent, “If These Knishes Could Talk,” has been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, WSJ, NPR, and the BBC. It recently screened at the Library of Congress.
Heather is currently writing a book about the history of plagues and pandemics tentatively titled, “You’re Gonna Die”; she’s also writing a screenplay about her stepmother called “DIE BITCH DIE”; and is planning her fall wedding to writer Adam McGovern.
Update! Since the postponement of our “Precious” show, Heather and Adam were married in May via ZOOM. Click here to read about their virtual wedding.
