Letters to a Young Artist

Straight-up Advice on Making a Life in the Arts-For Actors, Performers, Writers, and Artists of Every Kind

By Anna Deavere Smith
Narrated by Anna Deavere Smith / 4 hours 28 minutes

From "the most exciting individual in American theater" (Newsweek), here is Anna Deavere Smith's brass-tacks advice to aspiring artists of all stripes. In the manner of Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet, Deavere Smith mentors her young artist over a period of five years, sharing her hard won wisdom about the challenges and rewards of the artistic life. Drawing on her own life experiences as an actor, teacher, and playwright, Deavere Smith provides a motivating example for how to pursue one's art without compromise, while addressing the full spectrum of issues that people starting out will face-from questions of confidence, discipline, and self-esteem, to fame, failure, and fear, to staying healthy, presenting yourself effectively, building a diverse social and professional network, and using your art to promote social change. Honest, passionate, and inspiring, this audiobook has life-changing potential.
