MEETING: LIBRARY BOARD OF TRUSTEES


Buena Vista Branch, 7:00 p.m.

AUTHOR EVENT: DAVID THOMSON
Our guest is the distinguished film critic and author David Thomson, who tells the story of the Warner brothers -- Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack (Mose, Aaron, Szmul, and Jacob) -- who arrived in America as unschooled Jewish immigrants. Together, they founded a studio that became the smartest, toughest, and most radical in all of Hollywood, one that would reshape Americans’ ideas about their country, about immigrants, and about themselves.

Mr. Thomson will be introduced by Mark Greenhalgh, a senior archivist at Warner Bros., and will be "in conversation" with George Feltenstein, Senior Vice President of Theatrical Marketing at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

The book will be available for purchase and signing.
