You’ll have a chance to hear directly from the show's creative team: Ryan Murphy (Co-creator/Executive Producer); Brad Falchuk (Co-creator/Executive Producer) and Ian Brennan (Co-creator/Executive Producer). The event takes place at 7 pm tonight at The Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills. Tickets: $10 members / $15 general public. A limited number of free tickets will also be available to members of WGA, ATAS, SAG, AFTRA, DGA and PGA. (Membership card is a must.)
Meet the guy who’s now making a boatload off the Twitter feed Shit My Dad Says. Justin Halpern is reading from his new book based on the feed tonight at 7 pm at Skylight Books. He’s also the founding editor of the comedy website HolyTaco.com and a senior writer at Maxim.com and is currently co-writing and co-executive producing a sitcom adaptation for Warner Bros and CBS. Jealous much? Yes, we are. 7:30 pm at Skylight Books.
For something a little more heavy, tonight Vroman’s welcomes author Zoe Carter to discuss and sign her memoir Imperfect Endings. “After living with Parkinson’s disease for over two decades, Zoe Carter’s mother, Margaret, decides to end her life by assisted suicide. Carter, the youngest of three sisters, is devastated by her mother’s decision. In Imperfect Endings, her debut memoir, Carter traces the family’s journey, intercutting scenes of her mother’s final days.” 7 pm.
