@ Busboys and Poets Brookland: Amber Tamblyn - Dark Sparkler

Friday, February 19, 2016 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Best known as an actress, Tamblyn got her start on General Hospital and has been nominated for major awards including an Emmy and a Golden Globe. She has also pursued a successful career as a writer, and has published two collections of poetry, Free Stallion and Bang Ditto. Her third book of poems draws on her intimate experience with performance to evoke the voices and experiences of twenty-five actresses whose lives ended prematurely. Marilyn Monroe is here, as are Frances Farmer, Taruni Sachdev, a teenage Bollywood star, and others both famous and forever aspiring. Tamblyn’s forthright style conveys both her subjects’ emotions and her own powerful feelings about acting, the film industry, and the toll both can take on talented young women.
