The Seattle Review of Books comes to SIFF

It's Memorial Day weekend in Seattle, which means it's perfect movie-watching weather! I hope you'll come to SIFF's Shoreline outpost tomorrow at 3 pm to watch a secreening of Author: The JT LeRoy Story. I'll be interviewing director Jeff Feuerzeig after the film. The Vulture's Bilge Ebiri reviewed the movie when it debuted at Sundance, calling it...

...a maze of identity: A girl who dreams of herself as a boy who dreams of himself as a girl, played by a girl pretending to be a boy, all overseen by the girl herself, playing another, different girl.

There's so much ground to cover here: authorship, the responsibility of novelists, identity, gender, authenticity, and more. Tickets are available at SIFF; I hope you'll join us.
