Hyatt Bass Wikipedia
Hyatt Bass (born 1968/1969) is an American novelist, screenwriter, film director and philanthropist.
Her father, Sid Bass, is an oil heir and business executive. Her mother, Anne Hendricks Bass, is a philanthropist and art collector. Her parents divorced in 1986. Two polaroid pictures of her taken in 1980, when she was a child, by Andy Warhol were gifted by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to the Princeton University Art Museum and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2008.
She graduated from Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree.
In 2000, she was the screenwriter and director of 75 Degrees in July.
She published a novel entitled The Embers in 2009. She took seven years to write it. The novel is about Laura and Joel Ascher, two Manhattanites whose marriage ends in divorce after their son Thomas dies. Fifteen years later, they reunite for their daughter Emily's wedding. In a review for The Book Reporter, Bass was described as 'a gifted writer whose storytelling acumen and evocative prose speak to her real potential as a novelist.'
She has made charitable contributions to the National Book Foundation, the Sadie Nash Leadership Project and The Marshall Project. She has also funded the documentary Women, War & Peace on PBS. In 2010, she co-chaired the 23 Annual Stepping Out and Stepping Up Gala organized by the New York Women's Foundation.
In 2007, Vanity Fair reported that "as of some years ago", Hyatt and her sister Samantha had trust funds of US$280 million each.
She is married to Josh Klausner, and she has two sons. They live in Manhattan, in New York City.
