Gerry Orz created a name for himself at a young age. Dedicated to the art of storytelling, he began writing and producing his own films at the age of eight, and at nine released the short film Day of Silence, which encouraged California lawmakers to enact legislation for a Bullying Prevention Day.
Following his early successes Orz turned his attention to writing, and in 2017 released his debut novel Lucky or Not, Here I Come. The story focuses on John Wilson, who is convinced that he will never live up to his parents’ expectations. However a series of extraordinary events changes his life forever.
Now Orz is scheduled for two readings and signings in the Los Angeles area in September 2018. It’s a perfect opportunity for both fans and newcomers to his work to see the rising star.
See Gerry Orz at Beyond Baroque on Friday, September 14, 2018, 8:00 pm, and at The Last Bookstore on Sunday, September 16, 2018, 6:30–7:30 pm.
