Harvard Book Store welcomes memoirist and Tony Award–winning actor ALAN CUMMING on Sunday, September 25th at 6:00 PM to discuss his latest book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams: My Life in Stories and Pictures—a magical concoction of his mischievous, tender, whimsical, and debauched real-life adventures, told in his own words and pictures. Mr. Cumming will be joined in-conversation by WGBH’s JARED BOWEN.
About You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams:
Described by the New York Times as “a bawdy countercultural sprite” and named one of the most fun people in show business by Time magazine, Alan Cumming is a genuine quadruple threat—an internationally acclaimed, award-winning star of stage, television, and film, as well as a New York Times best-selling author whose real-life vivacity, wit, and charm shine through every page of his third book, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams. In these forty-five picture essays, Cumming recounts his real-life adventures (and often, misadventures), illustrated by his own equally entertaining photographs. From an awkward bonding session with Elizabeth Taylor to poignant stories about his family and friends to some harsh words of wisdom imparted by Oprah that make up the title of this collection, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams is as eclectic, enchanting, and alive as its author.
