True Blood fans in New York City will have an amazing chance to see True Blood’s Tanya Wright on 4/9/11. She will be at the Hue-Man Bookstore for a special book signing and movie preview for “Butterfly Rising”. I just received an e-vite from Ms. Wright and since I can’t go I want to make sure any and all fans in the area can get out there. The invite above has the address but here is the website with additional information: Hue-Man Bookstore link for signing
Here is the information from Tanya on the event:
You are cordially invited to attend the NYC debut book signing/screening for Tanya Wright (Deputy Kenya Jones from HBO’s TRUE BLOOD) and her book/movie BUTTERFLY RISING!
BUTTERFLY RISING is the tale of an unlikely friendship between a grief-stricken singer (Lilah Belle) and the town seductress (Rose Johnson) who take a road trip to meet the mythical Lazarus of the Butterflies that changes their lives…forever.
Come help me celebrate my return to my hometown of NYC, where I’LL SCREEN SELECT SCENES from BUTTERFLY RISING THE MOVIE for the FIRST TIME!!!
‘one of the five finest debut novels of 2010’
–Brooklyn Book Festival
‘…if Wright’s goal was to have you close her book wanting more of the emotional roller-coaster ride you experienced through the 27 well written chapters, she has succeeded.’
— The Baltimore Times
Tanya Wright recurs in the role of “Kenya” on the popular HBO series, True Blood. A native of the Bronx, NY, she attended George School in Pennsylvania and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Vassar College before working at the New York Times. After participating in the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival, she relocated to LA to pursue an acting career, quickly gaining momentum on the small screen with roles on critically acclaimed television shows like 24, NYPD BLUE, and ER. While in front of the camera, Tanya continued to write. She was a semi-finalist in AMPAS’ Nicholl Screenwriting Competition and a fellow at the Mark Taper Blacksmyth’s Playwriting Lab. Tanya is also the writer/creator of several screenplays, television shows, and web-based series. Butterfly Rising, the film of her screenplay, marks her directorial debut. She enjoys dance, yoga, mentoring, and playing fetch with her black Labrador, Macarena (like the dance!), who plays “Baby Girl” in the movie.
Light food, drinks will be served.
