Actor-author Nico Tortorella in Cebu for September 15 book signing
NATIONAL Book Store is bringing actor, model, LGBTQIA+ advocate, and author Nico Tortorella to the Philippines for the “All of It Is You.” tour.
Tortorella will be at the SM City Cebu Northwing Atrium, 1 p.m. on September 15 and at the 39th Manila International Book Fair’s Main Stage, 2 p.m. on September 16.
Gender-fluid and prefers them/they pronouns, Tortorella was born in Wilmette, Illinois in the US. Their career started after acclaimed writer, producer, and director Joel Schumacher cast them in two of his films, “Twelve” and “Trespass.” They were also part of several other films, including ‘Hunter & Game’ and “Odd Thomas.” In television, they have been part of “Mamma Dallas,” and “The Following” “Menendez: Blood Brothers.”
They are best known for playing the role of Josh on Darren Starr’s hit comedy series, “Younger,” which is garnering its highest ratings yet and is currently on its 5th season. Nico recently married their longtime partner, Bethany Myers, and they reside in New York with their two dogs.
“All of It Is You.” is their debut poetry collection, exploring a singular voice honed through years as an actor, podcaster and advocate – one colored with love, wonder, and endless curiosity. It is a sensuous journey into who we are and how we relate to the world around us, showing how the connections we make are vital to understanding why we are here.
Registration will start at 10 a.m. on September 15 (Saturday) at the Northwing Atrium of SM City Cebu. Participants will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.
A participant can only register once. Each participant will be given a numbered signing pass and a stamp mark on the hand to indicate their registration. Each participant may have up to three (3) Nico Tortorella books to be signed. Only books purchased from National Book Store, Powerbooks, and NBS Express will be allowed. Please present either the official receipt or price tag of the books.
