Mary Louise Parker With Sherman Alexie says
Special late addition! We are utterly delighted to announce that esteemed film and stage actress Mary-Louise Parker, a recipient of most major acting awards, and who happens to be wrapping up a film in the area, will make this special appearance here, in the company of Sherman Alexie. Ms. Parker has made quite a splash in the literary world with the appearance of her highly praised memoir and first book, Dear Mr. You (Scribner).

“To have an artist accomplished in one genre triumph in another - seemingly out of the blue - is an extraordinary event. Mary-Louise Parker’s Dear Mr. You is a pants-pissingly funny, gut-wrenching meditation on her loving and tormented encounters with the masculine … Whether honoring the ash-covered firefighter she sees on 9/11 or shouting as a crazy person at her malignantly lost cabdriver, Parker merges memoir with poetry in this haunting sui generis work … A magnificent, necessary surprise.” - Mary Karr

Sherman Alexie, himself an esteemed poet, fiction writer, standup performer, and presently, the author of a wonderful first children’s picture book, Thunder Boy Jr., has played this onstage role with grace, humor, and aplomb in the past. A night not to be missed.

There will be a brief reading, Sherman’s Q&A session, and then a booksigning. Ms. Parker will sign copies of her book. (Sorry, no memorabilia, no posed photos.)
