Incognito Book Release Party at Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre


This February, Michael Sidney Fosberg celebrates the release of his memoir, INCOGNITO: An American Odyssey of Race and Self-Discovery at Victory Gardens Biograph Theater, where in the summer of 2008 he presented his one-man, autobiographical play, Incognito. Playwright and Victory Gardens Theater Literary Manager, Aaron Carter, will conduct an interview with Mr. Fosberg followed by a short reading from the book.

At age 34, writer-actor Michael Fosberg began a personal search for his biological father that turned up a whole lot more. Having grown up in a white working-class family, raised by his biological mother and an adoptive stepfather, Fosberg set off on his search armed with only the name of his father and a city. Miraculously, the first call he made was successful, setting into motion a series of discoveries about his family: secrets and lies, confrontation and reconciliation. His father reveals to him “a couple of things I’m sure your mother never told you”—first, that he’d always thought about him, and second, that he is black.
