Back at the Book Fest

gaithersburg_book_festival_logo_001If you’re near Rockville, Maryland tomorrow evening, come on over to the Johns Hopkins University, Montgomery County Campus, where I’ll be speaking about George Lucas at 7 p.m. as part of the Gaithersburg Book Festival.  (Yeah, I’m back in my old neck of the woods — and I also know I’m competing with one of my old employers, since the Montgomery County Council is holding a Town Hall meeting at the same time down in Silver Spring.  Choose the event that best suits your particular wants and needs…)

I’ve spoken at the GBF before — back in 2014, I talked Jim Henson — and I’m looking forward to getting back again.  If you’re thinking of attending, doors open at 6:30 p.m. at  Gilchrist Hall Auditorium on the JHU MC campus at 9601 Medical Center Drive in Rockville.

Come on out! It’ll be fun! Really!

The One in Which I Enjoy Being George Lucas’s Biographer

Last week, I had the great pleasure of speaking on George Lucas as part of the Great Lives lecture series at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.*  If you missed it . . . well, it doesn’t look like I had a LICK of fun, does it? (I call this Study in Big Gestures, Number 1483 in a Series).

And I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that all these terrific photos were taken by the remarkable Karen Pearlman, who manages to make EVERYONE look good.

* Yeah, I’m Associate Director of the series now.  But I was asked to speak here LONG before I signed on for the AD gig. DON’T JUDGE ME.
