Author: The JT LeRoy Story (NC) Book Tickets

Friday 25 August

111 mins – United States 2016 – Documentary – Dir: Jeff Feuerzeig
Featuring: Laura Albert, Bruce Benderson and Dennis Cooper

In 2006 The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked writer JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about a sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn’t exist. He was the creation of 40-year-old writer and former phone-sex operator Laura Albert. Albert’s epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation.

**Due to circumstances beyond our control Laura Albert will no longer be attending tonight’s screening of Author: The JT Leroy Story. The screening will go ahead as planned but without the Q&A.**
