For More Information

I've been on the Pioneer Theater's mailing list for some time now and this is the first thing that has struck me as something that I would want to see. I think the Pioneer Theater is a wonderful institution but there just hasn't been anything for me to see there ... until now. They are hosting an Out of the Book film project screening. I think the Out of the Book Film Project is a fantastic idea!

The Out of the Book Film Project is a series of 30-minute films featuring renowned authors in their personal surroundings, discussing their latest works and giving audiences a glimpse of their lives. The films are distributed through independent bookstores across the country. More expansive than traditional readings, the project aims to generate spirited discussion about great new books.

After the film, a live panel of New York literary lights will offer insights on Ian McEwan's life and work. The panelists will include John Freeman, president of the National Book Critics Circle; Colum McCann, novelist (ZOLI), memoirist and novelist Kathryn Harrison (THE KISS), and others. Freeman and McCann are also featured in the film.

Tickets are available at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Soho.
