Actor Amber Tamblyn’s career has led her to countless parts on film and TV, from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Two and a Half Men to the Oscar-nominated Django Unchained and 127 Hours. But she isn’t just an actress — she’s an author, too. At Boswell, she’ll be reading from her new collection of poems, Dark Sparkler. Inspired by an obscure interest in the tragic and peculiar lives of deceased actresses, the collection is described as an exploration of life, death and celebrity.
