Free Tix: Scott Turow and Brian Dennehy on Tuesday night

IDENTICAL-Cover.jpgIf you were a fan of Scott Turow's early blockerbuster legal thrillers, you will possibly remember that in the film version of "Presumed Innocent," Brian Dennehy played prosecuting attorney Raymond Horgan. They are together again for Turow's appearance Tuesday night at Live Talks Los Angeles to talk about his newest book, "Identical." LTLA will make five pairs of tickets available to LA Observed readers: first come, first served. The event is at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica at 8 p.m.

Turow was last at LTLA in 2010, when he chatted with Dustin Hoffman. Here's some of what Live Talks LA says about the new book:

Identical is loosely based on the myth of Castor and Pollux, the twin sons (one mortal and one immortal) of Zeus. As the story goes, when Castor was killed, Pollux begged Zeus to share his immortality with his brother so that the twins could remain together – Zeus allowed it, and they were transformed into the constellation Gemini. Identical tells the story of Paul and Cass Giannis, identical twins, whose future was bright until one fateful day in 1983 when Athena “Dita” Kronon—then-girlfriend of Cass Giannis—was murdered after her family’s summer party.
