SCAD’s Ivy Hall Writers Series presents director, screenwriter and author Terrell Tannen. Tannen’s new memoir, “When Blood is Gone: A Memoir of Time, Place and Family,” reflects on his worldly childhood as the son of an intelligence officer and a military nurse. His childhood in rural Georgia, Indiana, New Mexico, Washington, D.C., and Naples, Italy, inspired him to become a documentary filmmaker and then to write for film and television.

Tannen has written screenplays for Academy Award-winning directors, including Sydney Pollack, Hal Ashby, Hugh Hudson, John Huston and Phillip Noyce. The last remaining member of his immediate family, Tannen's poignant book is about life, death and what really matters in life.

The event is free and open to the public.

A book sale and signing will follow.
