David Kipen -- a fixture of literary Los Angeles as the author of Dear Los Angeles: The City in Diaries and Letters and founder of the Boyle Heights lending library Libros Schmibros -- presents "The Talbot Show."
With their roots in Old Hollywood (patriarch Lyle Talbot was cofounder of the Screen Actors Guild and a second-tier Warner Bros. star during the Golden Age of the Silver Screen), the Talbot family has gone on to second and third generation acclaim.
David Talbot, the founder of the pioneering digital magazine Salon and bestselling author (Season of the Witch, The Devil's Chessboard), takes an inward look with his new memoir, Between Heaven and Hell, examining how his recent massive stroke not just changed his life, but saved it. His sister Margaret Talbot, a staff writer at The New Yorker magazine, is the author of The Entertainer, an intimate portrait of father Lyle's colorful journey from Midwestern magician's apprentice to Hollywood stardom. And David's son Joe Talbot is now making his own mark in movies, as the director and co-writer of the widely praised 2019 film, "The Last Black Man in San Francisco." Join Kipen and the Talbot family for an evening about their creative journey through the media and show business. Co-hosted by Alta magazine, Contributing Editor Mary Melton will open the evening with introductions.
