I’ll be discussing my book and reading some stories this Wednesday evening at Northbrae Community Church in Berkeley.
The stories are from my memoir Showdown at Shinagawa: Tales of Filming from Bombay to Brazil, about my global travels and work as a cinematographer.
Showdown features 18 tales, from the surreal Japanese bowling-for-budget match in the title story, to commiseration with President Clinton over family tragedies in “Dog Years,” to a bus trip down India’s deadly Bombay-Pune Road in “Wrecks and Pissers.”
I’ll be describing the relative ease of self-publishing, compared with the challenge of getting noticed among over one million books published in the U.S. each year.
My talk is part of a monthly Community Dinner and speaker series and takes place at
Northbrae Community Church
941 The Alameda
Wednesday Feb 3 @ 7:30
My talk is in the Chapel. Enter from Los Angeles Avenue.
Suggested donation at the door — $5 (speaker only)
Optional homemade pasta dinner at 6:30 pm — $7 (includes speaker)
I’ll also be selling and signing books. Please come out and join us for a fun evening!
