Jack Bender In Conversation with Jason Ritter at Books Inc. Opera Plaza

Event has passed (Thu Apr 7, 2016 - Thu Apr 7, 2016)
Books Inc. in Opera Plaza


A producer and director on projects such as Lost, The Sopranos, and Game of Thrones, JACK BENDER shares his brilliant debut book, I Am The Elephant in the Room.

If ever there was a children's book for adults only, this is the one: sweet and surreal, playfully Picasso, and full of cockeyed wisdom. I was charmed, and I'm giving the damn thing to everyone. I think you ll do the same. My advice is grab a copy immediately. Yesterday, if possible. -Stephen King
The Elephant in the Room, is a collection of stories told through his art, a lyrical interweaving of abstraction, rich color and texture, and surreal dreaminess. With themes of morality, identity, love, loss, death, and birth, these stories are tender and intimate, but cut with Bender's biting humor and a master storyteller's sense of irony.

A slideshow presentation will also be featured AND Jack will be interviewed by JASON RITTER, from NBC’s Parenthood, Comedy Central’s Drunk History and Another Period, and Shoshanna’s love interest on HBO’s Girls.
