Anna Deavere Smith at Grace Cathedral

By

San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral is launching an Artist in Residence program. Their first artist is awesome playwright, actor, and author Anna Deavere Smith, who will “share in the life of the cathedral, preach, host Forum events, and create a new work centering on the topic of grace” throughout this approaching January and February! This is the perfect excuse to review all her work over the holidays, starting with the first four seasons of The West Wing and her book Letters to a Young Artist: Straight-Up Advice on Making a Life in the Arts — For Actors, Performers, Writers, and Artists of Every Kind.
