YOU GOTTA GET BIGGER DREAMS: MY LIFE IN STORIES AND PICTURES

Published September 13 by Rizzoli, New York

Sunday, October 16 – 3:00 p.m.
Sosnoff Theater, Fisher Center for the Performing Arts
Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY

Tickets: $37 – Ticket includes one copy of You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures
Alan Cumming will be signing copies of You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures after the event.
He will not be signing any other books or ephemera.

Described by Time magazine as one of the most fun people in show business, Alan Cumming is a genuine triple-threat as a successful stage, television, and film star whose roles and performances reflect his authentic exuberance, sophisticated wit, and winsome-yet-devilish charm. 

At this event, Cumming will talk with WAMC’s Joe Donahue about his new collection of autobiographical essays in which the actor, singer, writer, and man-about-town shares wildly entertaining real-life stories of louche late-night parties, backstage anecdotes, life in LA and New York, cross-country road trips with his beloved dog, Honey, and poignant memories of his life, loves, family, fellow actors, and friends.

Hear about encounters that only Cumming could experience, from awkwardly entertaining Elizabeth Taylor at Carrie Fisher’s birthday party, to discussing love and sex with Gore Vidal, to making a friend’s dream come true by snapping a photo of him with Oprah—a story that also reveals the source of the book’s title! 

Illustrated by Cumming’s own memorable photographs, these forty-five charming, naughty, thoughtful, and wickedly hilarious stories will leave the reader feeling like a lucky member of Alan Cumming’s inner circle.

Following the interview portion of this event Alan Cumming will entertain questions from the audience, followed by a book signing.
