Kirkland Hamill - Filthy Beasts
Please join us for a discussion with Kirkland Hamill of his riveting memoir Filthy Beasts. Brilliantly written with wry humor and unabashed heart, Hamill takes us along for the bobsled ride that was his upbringing and early adulthood in a wealthy family coming apart.
For the moment, we are scheduling this as a virtual event pending any changes in the ever evlolving covid-19 quarantine restrictions. Follow us here for updates and details as the date draws near.
At the start of Kirkland Hamill’s memoir I anticipated a familiar glance into the world of East Coast wealth and privilege. What I discovered instead was a riches to rags journey into the heart and mind of a young man coming to terms with his own identity while at the same time holding it all together for himself and his brothers in the center of his mother’s unraveling. Written with wit, humor, clarity and shameless self reflection, Filthy Beasts stayed with for me days after I put it down. Mr. Hammill is a gifted story teller you will want to hear from again.
