One City One Book 2016: Carey Perloff’s “Beautiful Chaos: A Life in the Theater”

One City One Book: San Francisco Reads is an annual citywide literary event encouraging everyone to read the same book at the same time and then discuss it at events throughout the City.

The 2016 book is Carey Perloff’s Beautiful Chaos: A Life in the Theater, published locally by City Lights Foundation Books. Perloff’s personal and professional journey—her life as a woman in a male-dominated profession, as a wife and mother, a playwright, director, producer, arts advocate, and citizen in a city erupting with enormous change. She offers a behind-the-scenes perspective, including her intimate working experiences with well-known actors, directors, and writers.

Carey Perloff is a playwright and current artistic director of American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) in San Francisco. Perloff writes and lectures regularly about the American theater and about issues in culture and contemporary life that are close to her heart. She and her husband have two children: Alexandra, and Nicholas, best known as the electronic music producer Flaxo.

Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother, SF’s One City One Book selection for 2013 will be joined in conversation by Nico Sell.

Cory Doctorow is a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger — the co-editor of Boing Boing and the author of young adult novels like Homeland, Pirate Cinema and Little Brother and novels for adults like Rapture of the Nerds and Makers. He is the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and co-founded the UK Open Rights Group. Born in Toronto, Canada, he now lives in London. Nico Sell, a security expert and longtime organizer for Defcon, is the cofounder of Wickr, a free app that provides military-grade encryption of text, picture, audio and video messages and the best available privacy, anonymity and secure file shredding features.
