About Andrea Grossman

Andrea sits around a lot and reads. She probably needs to get out more often—especially since Los Angeles is so beautiful. In the meantime, she thanks all of you for coming to Writers Bloc programs, which she’s been curating for the past 21 years. She thanks all of you for visiting this website; she enjoys writing it almost as much as she loves plowing through good novels and watching fun tv shows. She thanks those who work the programs and help her out. She is also the executive producer of the Emmy-nominated HBO special, featuring Mel Brooks and Dick Cavett, a product of a terrific Writers Bloc event. We couldn’t make these programs happen without each and every one of you—readers from near and far, authors, contributors, tweeters, family and friends.
