Writers Bloc Presents© and the Skirball invite you to an evening with acclaimed biographer Blake Bailey as he delves into his newest work, Philip Roth: The Biography. For this project, Bailey was granted independence and complete access to Roth’s personal archive. He spent years poring over Roth’s life, interviewing those close to him, and engaging the author himself in breathtakingly candid conversations. The result is an indelible portrait of an American master and key figure in the postwar literary scene.

Joined by humorist Peter Sagal (NPR’s Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me!), Bailey puts this enigmatic figure into focus. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from the biographer personally chosen by the late, great Philip Roth.

Signed books available for purchase from Chevalier’s Books.
