Sign up/in to register for this event

Award-winning Scottish actor and writer Alan Cumming will grace the virtual stage of the Toronto International Festival of Authors on Tuesday, October 19 to present his new and highly anticipated memoir, Baggage: Tales from a Fully Packed Life (releasing October 26). The free, virtual event will kick off the celebration of the Festival’s 42nd edition, which starts on October 21.

A multi-hyphenate artist, Cumming is best known for his work in films such as Spy Kids, X2: X-Men United and Eyes Wide Shut and his Tony Award-winning performance as the Emcee in the Broadway musical Cabaret. Cumming will sit down with TIFA Director Roland Gulliver for a live conversation about his second memoir, penned seven years after his bestselling Not My Father’s Son.

Poignant and joyous, Cumming’s newest book chronicles his life in Hollywood as he shows how every experience – good or bad – has shaped who he is today: a happy, flawed, vulnerable, fearless middle-aged man with a lot of baggage.

This event will be available to the general public to view for three days after its initial broadcast. As always, TIFA’s donating Friends may view for 10 days, and Patrons may have unlimited access. To become a donating Friend or Patron, please click here.
