Although you might recognize Emmy-nominated actress Amber Tamblyn from her work on television shows like House or Joan of Arcadia, this Hollywood hotshot doesn’t just perform other people’s words; she writes her own. Tamblyn has had three acclaimed collections of poetry published since 2005. Join her as she reads from her latest work, a haunting and provocative collection called Dark Sparkler, which explores the lives of more than 25 actresses lost before their time, from Marilyn Monroe to Brittany Murphy. It’s a topic that Tamblyn is deeply familiar with as an actress, and in the book, she expertly paints an empathic picture of the often sordid and tragic lives of these celebrities. It’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss because, after all, who better is there to tell you about the side of this industry hidden underneath the glitz and glamour of stardom than a star herself?
