“An unusual friendship in context of my work started a number of years back with JT LeRoy — first with middle of the night messages and small items left for me at the theatre in return for a small favor. Eventually there were some direct phone calls, and emails exchanged. Then the world discovered that JT LeRoy is Laura Albert. I’m not even sure how to describe Laura, but unique is a start. Her talents and personality are huge. She has a similarly large heart and generous nature. She is a public figure that has been discussed at length. She has not been overly public with appearances here in her hometown, so the late night event this Friday is particularly special. Enjoy it, Laura.” — Steve Indig, Landmark Senior Regional Publicist

Laura Albert won international acclaim with her fiction. Writing as JT LeRoy, she is the author of the best-selling novels Sarah and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, and the novella Harold’s End
