Mad Men Creator Matthew Weiner in Conversation

November 14, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Literary Café presents:
Mad Men Creator MATTHEW WEINER
In Conversation with KQED’S MICHAEL KRASNY

Matthew Weiner has been entertaining audiences for two decades, most recently as writer, creator, executive producer, and director of Mad Men, one of television’s most honored series. He also worked as a writer and executive producer on The Sopranos, along with several comedy series, and made his feature film debut in 2014.

Tonight Matthew joins KQED’s “Forum” host Michael Krasny in conversation; regarding his life, career and most resent endeavor HEATHER, THE TOTALITY, a short, daring novel that demonstrates perfectly Weiner’s forensic eye for the human qualities that hold modern society together, and pull it apart.

Conversation followed by audience Q & A, book sales and signing.

“Heather, The Totality is a tour de force of control, tone and razor-slash insight. In its clear-eyed anatomist’s gaze and its remarkable combination of empathy and pitilessness.” —Michael Chabon, author of Moonglow

“This short novel of upper-crust anomie and class-divide obsession is a scorcher!

Presented in Association with Book Passage”- —James Ellroy
