André Gregory is joined by his friend Adam Gopnik for a discussion about his long career in the theater, his films—including the legendary My Dinner with André—and his life-long engagement with the arts.
They will also talk about Gregory’s new book, This Is Not My Memoir, in which he shares memories for the first time about a life lived for art. Taking on the dizzying, wondrous nature of a fever dream, This is Not My Memoir includes fantastic and fantastical stories that take the reader from wartime Paris to golden-age Hollywood, from avant-garde theaters to monasteries in India. Along the way we meet Jerzy Grotowski, Helene Weigel, Gregory Peck, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, Wallace Shawn, and many other larger-than-life personalities.
