“Lunch with the Authors”: Bess Kalb in Conversation with Elayne Klasson via YouTube (12/2)
The Detroit JCC Book Fairs presents “Lunch with the Authors”: Bess Kalb, author of NOBODY WILL TELL YOU THIS BUT ME: A True (As Told to Me) Story (Knopf), in virtual conversation with Elayne Klasson, followed by an audience Q&A, via YouTube on Wednesday, December 2 at 1:30 pm (ET).
Kalb, Emmy-nominated TV writer and New Yorker contributor, saved every voicemail her grandmother Bobby Bell ever left her. Bobby was a force–irrepressible, glamorous, unapologetically opinionated. Bobby doted on Bess; Bess adored Bobby. Then, at ninety, Bobby died. But in this debut memoir, Bobby is speaking to Bess once more, in a voice as passionate as it ever was in life.
An Emmy-nominated writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live, Bess Kalb also earned her a Writer’s Guild Award in 2016. She has also written for the Oscars and the Emmys. A regular contributor to The New Yorker‘s “Daily Shouts,” her work has been published in The New Republic, Grantland, Salon.com, Wired, The Nation, and elsewhere. She lives in Los Angeles.
