Lobby Talk: Norman Bacal
Festival Theatre Lobby
Cost: Free. Reserve your space here
Norman Bacal built a law firm, worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest studios, mentored two generations of young lawyers and, seven years ago, abandoned it all. It was time to reset, to learn the art of writing from scratch. He has published four books including two murder mysteries: Odell’s Fall, a modernization of Othello, followed by Ophelia Drowning in Guilt, a modern Hamlet. Facing the age-old question of how to find purpose in life after a career sunset, Bacal speaks of how Shakespeare inspired him to rebuild his life after a stunning collapse. This bestselling author and TEDx speaker should not be missed.
