The good folks at the Writers Guild Foundation have a special offer for GITS readers for an upcoming event in Los Angeles. Check it out:
Tue, September 20, 2016
7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
As the creator and showrunner of the Starz Original Series BLUNT TALK (which premieres its second season on October 2) as well as the much-missed HBO series BORED TO DEATH, Jonathan Ames is known for his whimsical style of maneuvering flawed yet empathetic characters through their substance-filled misadventures and idiosyncratic lives.
Ames is also known for cribbing elements of his real life adventures into both his television and literary work, which includes three novels (one of which was adapted into the film THE EXTRA MAN), the autobiographical graphic novel THE ALCOHOLIC, numerous collections of essays and memoirs, and monologues he’s staged himself or at The Moth.
On this special night, Ames shares his approach and process to writing his varied projects, how they inform one another, and how he developed his self-referential style. Moderated by Elvis Mitchell, host of KCRW’s The Treatment.
Doors open at 7pm. Event starts at 7:30pm.
The first 10 people to post in comments get a free ticket to the event, courtesy of the Writers Guild Foundation. For more information about the event, go here.
