An Evening with Jill Soloway
Tickets sales are open to Library Foundation Members. Please refer to your advance notice e-mail for access.
The Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning creator of Transparent and I Love Dick takes us behind-the-scenes of a revelatory emotional and professional journey to challenge the status quo. In the rousingly passionate and provocative new memoir, She Wants It, Jill Soloway reflects on shifting family dynamics—from a parent coming out as transgender to Soloway’s evolution from straight, married mother of two to identifying as queer and nonbinary—and how these experiences fueled a creative vision to transform the male-dominated landscape of Hollywood. As a director, show creator, and activist working to explode mainstream ideas about gender, Soloway has helped to give rise to a new cultural consciousness. Discussing this poignant new book with an interlocutor, Soloway joins us for a timely conversation about identity, love, sexuality, and the reshaping of our collective worldview in the aftermath of the #metoo movement.
