National Book Store (NBS) is bringing actor, model, LGBTQIA+ advocate and author Nico Tortorella to the Philippines for the “All of It Is You” tour.
He will be at the SM City Cebu Northwing Atrium at 1 p.m. on 15 September and at the 39th Manila International Book Fair’s Main Stage at 2 p.m. on 16 September.
Tortorella, who is gender-fluid and prefers them/they pronouns, was born in Wilmette, Illinois in the United States. 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, The Following and 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 fifth season.
Tortorella 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. The book is available for P799 in NBS branches and online on www.nationalbookstore.com.
