Book Description Courtesy of Hardie Grant Publishing (www.hardiegrant.com)

“Self-proclaimed B-List actor and famous man-on-the-scene, Alan Cumming takes the reader on 60 mis-adventures of pithy and cheeky fun in this self-titled book. Reading like 60 novellas each illustrated by memorable images taken the author himself, You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams presents humorous observations and recounts real-life stories of debauchery and humor, including late night Hollywood parties and a road trip to the Oprah show.”

Why You Should Put This Event On Your To-Do-List

This actor has had a diverse – and sometimes absurd career. With a performance history ranging from B movies to tony award winning roles on stage, Alan Cumming has seen both the low and the high brow ends of acting – and he has many stories to show for it.

Alan Cumming is also openly bisexual and has publically supported LGBT rights organizations like the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the Human Rights Campaign, and the American Foundation for Aids Research.
