WordTheatre gives voice to great writing at the exclusive Soho House West Hollywood. Actors including Denis O’Hare, Ian Hart and Julian Sands will perform and authors including Hal Ackerman and Evgenia Citkowitz will be present for a Q & A afterward.
Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story, True Blood) reads Hal Ackerman – Ackerman is the author of two novels, most recently Stein, Stung; and the co-area head of UCLA’s screenwriting program. His stories have been widely published in literary journals and he is a Warren Adler Award winner, author of one of Southeast Review’s World’s Best Short Shorts, and a Pushcart Prize nominee.
Ian Hart (Luck, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) reads Evgenia Citkowitz – “Citkowitz’s engaging debut collection looks at diverse characters on the edge, as they struggle with vulnerability and the conflicts in their choices, large and small … she deftly balances the rawer emotions of life–resentment, desire, humiliation–with a crafted, clever tone.” – Leah Strauss, Booklist
Julian Sands (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 24) reads Ben Okri (not appearing) – Winner of the Booker Prize winn for his novel The Famished Road, Okri is a Nigerian born author and poet. “Okri’s magical realism is distinctive; his prose is charged with passion and energy, electrifying in its imagery … a powerful, compassionate vision of modern Africa and the magical heritage of its myths.” – Publisher’s Weekly
Produced and Directed by Cedering Fox. Books will be sold at the event by Small World Books and authors will sign purchased copies. Appearances subject to change.
