Tomorrow Night's Event in Waltham, and Others...

Just some shameless self-promotion here for a second...

My new book Inventing the Movies came out in August, and I'm just starting to do some live events on the east and west coasts to promote it.

I have a 45-minute talk, illustrated with lots of photos and movie clips, and peppered with movie trivia, that focuses on the past, present, and future of Hollywood. The main theme: why does Hollywood (and all established, successful industries) tend to resist every innovation that comes along?

I'll be giving the talk this Wednesday evening at the Charles River Museum of Industry in Waltham...October 23rd at the Chelmsford Public Library...November 12th at the Museum of Science...and then in January and February at the Concord Free Library and the Boston Public Library.

The full schedule is here. The book's official Web site is here. Hope I'll see you at one of these events...
