All systems are go for Laura’s appearance on Thursday March 30 at a special 6 PM screening of Author: The JT LeRoy Story. The venue is The New School’s Eugene Lang Center (66 West 12th Street, Room 404), and Laura will be having a Q&A with writer Ann Snitow – which will be an event to remember! Just ask Laura: “She will BLOW YOU AWAY!! I mean, for reals! Now more than ever, we need Ann Snitow! I’m extra…” Activist, author, and educator, Ann Snitow is Associate Professor of Literature and Gender Studies at Lang College, and she knew Laura before JT LeRoy was even a smile on Sarah’s face…
Friends, we are delighted to announce that Laura will be in Leavenworth, Washington, at the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts on Friday, March 10. She’ll be participating in the Vox Docs Film Festival, attending a screening of Author: The JT LeRoy Story and holding a Q&A. There will be THREE book signings too, at A Book For All Seasons, where Laura will be joined by photographer and film director Phil Borges. Click HERE for more details.
We’re also so very happy to say that Laura will be in New York City at the end of March, speaking with writer Ann Snitow at a screening of Author at The New School’s Eugene Lang Center (66 West 12th Street, Room 404) on Thursday the 30th at 6:00 PM. More info is available HERE.

The prestigious Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South African International Film Festival celebrates creativity in the film and fashion industries, and the film Radiance – written by Laura Albert – has been chosen as an Official Selection for this year’s festival!
A production from ContentMode, the premiere digital fashion publication, Radiance melds Laura’s poetic text with Deborah Ferguson’s creative direction and Drew Lightfoot’s haunting imagery and post effects, the charismatic presence of actor Tom Lipinski, and the peerless fashion of Topman USA.
The Executive Producers of Radiance – Drew, Laura, and Deborah – are over the moon with excitement at this response to their work. Laura sends her congratulations to all the participants in this year’s festival – and her special thanks and respect to ContentMode, Topman, Drew, Deborah, Tom, and all the superb talent that made this magical film possible.
