A Tribute to Spaulding Gray

Saturday, November 5, 2011

Writers' Bloc Presents:

A Tribute to Spalding Gray  
With Nell Casey, Peter Gallagher, David Ulin and others

Tuesday, November 8th
7:30 p.m.

If you had the great good fortune to see Spalding Gray perform his unforgettable monologues, then you fell under his confessional spell, and you subsequently arrived at the logical conclusion that he bared his heart, soul and guts to you. His suicide in 2004 left a gaping hole in our national literary landscape.

In The Journals of Spalding Gray (masterfully edited and explained by Nell Casey), the reader realizes that an enormous opportunity has just been dropped in front of us: the opportunity to see a bit inside the heart and soul of the man who brought us so much. What Spalding Gray didn't deliver to us in his performances, Nell Casey delivers to us now. Check out the excerpt in the New York Times Magazine from October 6, 2011.

Writers Bloc hosts Nell Casey (editor of the bestselling Unholy Ghost: Writers on Depression), in conversation with David Ulin, book critic for the Los Angeles Times, and actors, including Peter Gallagher, who will read from the journals.
