Showcasing ‘Showdown at Shinagawa’ in Berkeley This Week

Upcoming Book Event—Wednesday • Feb 3 • 7:30 pm

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
Berkeley 94707
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!
