Description

The Last Bookstore welcomes Eleanor Seigler, who will be reading from her new book too much beauty, a collection of short vignettes and stories intended as an ‘an ode to humanity and everyone in it.’ Eleanor will be joined onstage by actor Matt Malloy and Meredith Westgate Russo, writer and Assistant Editor at The Los Angeles Review.

too much beauty is a tribute to those whose path Seigler crossed during several years spent jobless and unable to attain a lease in her name. As Seigler writes in the opening lines, ‘The last several years revolved around trying to find a home and to secure work. What happened, instead, was that I came face to face with humanity and all of the humans in it in ways I had not yet before known. In what simultaneously became a journey to find and better understand myself as a person in the world, I instead had the privilege of losing myself and gaining the rest of the world in its place, myself included. The man said no to me, but the People said yes.”

Eleanor Seigler lives between New York City and Los Angeles. She is best known for having played Jessica, Andy Bernard’s girlfriend on The Office.
