Nothing beats a good book, right? Well how about award-winning fiction performed by some of television’s top actors?


Such was the case at Guildhall’s Pushcart Prize benefit on Saturday, July 18, where guests were treated to live performances of brilliant short stories, produced and directed by Cedering Fox.


Included in the star-studded line up were Amber Tamblyn (Two and a Half Men, 127 Hours), Ari Graynor (Bad Teacher, Mystic River), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, House of Lies), Carla Gugino (San Andreas, Night at the Museum), Christopher McDonald (Thelma & Louise, Requiem for a Dream), Sarah Wynter (The 6th Day, 24), Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire, Jersey Boys) and Zach Grenier (Fight Club, The Good Wife).


The Pushcart Prize celebrates the best works of poetry, short-stories and essays of the year and the benefit at the East Hampton venue marked the award’s 40th anniversary.
