Literature + Theatre
An Evening with Alan Cumming and Grant Shaffer and The Adventures of Honey & Leon
Wednesday, September 13
8:00 PM / Book reading and signing
Award-winning actor and New York Times best-selling author Alan Cumming and artist Grant Shaffer have written a children's book, The Adventures of Honey & Leon, in tribute to their dogs. Based on the couple's conversations about what their dogs do while they're away, "it's no surprise that the dogs aspire to lead lives as action-packed and glamorous as their dads!"
So when Honey and Leon discover their dads are going to Europe, they start to worry. They're done staying home and fretting -- they're off on a dad-protecting adventure! Careful to remain incognito, the pups shadow their dads keeping them out of danger at every turn! Honestly, how had they survived without Honey and Leon's protection for this long? Alan Cumming is an actor, activist, singer, director, producer, and has also designed wallpaper.
Grant Shaffer is an artist whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Interview Magazine.
The event will be moderated by Foster Hirsch.
