The Wallis and The Library Foundation of Los Angeles’ ALOUD Series Present

An Evening with Alan Alda

In Conversation with Lisa Wolpe on Monday, June 12 at 7:30pm

(Beverly Hills, CA April 26) The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and The Library Foundation of Los Angeles’ ALOUD series present An Evening with Alan Alda on Monday, June 12 at 7:30pm. The award-winning actor and bestselling author will take the Bram Goldsmith Theater stage with Lisa Wolpe, Artistic Director and Founder of the Los Angeles Women’s Shakespeare Company, to discuss his new book If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face? and explore his decades-long quest to understand the intricacies of communication. The conversation will conclude with an audience Q&A.

With his trademark humor and candor, Alda’s new book, If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?, chronicles communication breakdowns from his own experiences—from a life-changing misunderstanding with a dentist to learning how to make science relatable to the masses as host of PBS’ “Scientific American Frontiers.” Drawing on his improvisation training, theater and storytelling techniques from a lifetime of acting, along with insights from recent scientific studies, Alda equips himself with a range of tools to relate to others more effectively. Sharing with audiences his strategies to build empathy and improve the way we communicate, Alda will demonstrate the art of conversation as he talks with Wolpe—actress, director, teacher and the Artistic Director and Founder of the Los Angeles Women’s Shakespeare Company and a master communicator in her own right.
