Amber Tamblyn experienced a crisis of character when trying to break out of her child acting career to become the writer and director she dreamed of being as an adult. After a low period of rejection and disillusionment, she entered into an Era of Ignition–the time of self-reflection that follows personal upheaval and leads to a call to action and positive change. During this metamorphosis, she realized that our country was going through an Era of Ignition of its own.
Through her fierce op-eds and tireless work as a founder of the Time’s Up organization, Amber is a bold, outspoken, and respected advocate for women’s rights. In Era of Ignition, she addresses gender inequality and the judgment paradigm, misogyny and discrimination, trauma and the veiled complexities of consent, white feminism and pay parity, reproductive rights and sexual assault–told through the personal lens of her own experiences and those of her Sisters in Solidarity.
Amber Tamblyn is an author, actor, and director. She's been nominated for an Emmy, Golden Globe, and Independent Spirit Award for her work in television and film, including House M.D., Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and Joan of Arcadia. She wrote and directed the feature film Paint It Black. She has authored three books of poetry and a novel, Any Man, and is a contributing writer for The New York Times.
This event will conclude with a book signing.
