Litquake 2016: Carey Perloff Book Discussion | SF
Submitted by the Event Organizer
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.
Co-presented by Litquake, Carey Perloff, Artistic Director of A.C.T., will discuss Beautiful Chaos: A Life in the Theater (published by the City Lights Foundation), chosen by the San Francisco Public Library as their One City One Book selection for fall 2016.
Carey will be interviewed by novelist Joshua Mohr, whose most recent book is All This Life.
