UK – Elstree 1976 Signing

000_elstree-1976

Director Jon Spira will be signing DVD copies of his documentary Elstree 1976 – accompanied by some of the cast members – at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on 18th November at 6:00pm. Joining Jon Spira will be rebel pilot Red 12, John Chapman, and Anthony Forrest – the Jedi mind-tricked Sandtrooper. “These aren’t the droids we are looking for”

Behind the masks. Beneath the helmets. Big People. Small Roles.

In 1976, the original Star Wars movie was shot in suburban North London. Nobody involved had any idea how big the film would become, many couldn’t even remember the title. Yet, for the extras and actors in smaller roles, their faces hidden behind masks and beneath helmets, this seemingly insignificant job would go on to colour their lives even four decades later.

Documentary filmmaker Jon Spira has tracked down a cross-section of these actors and extras, including David Prowse (Darth Vader) and Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), to find out what it means to have been a part of the most beloved cinematic universe of all time.

CA – The Princess Diarist Signing

000-cfisher-princess-diarist-fb

Carrie Fisher appears at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble to sign her latest book THE PRINCESS DIARIST on Monday November 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved–plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. The Princess Diarist is Fisher’s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all.

This is a wristbanded event. Wristbands will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday November 28th at 9am to customers who purchase “The Princess Diarist” from Barnes & Noble at The Grove.
• Limit 1 wristband per book
• No memorabilia please

CA – Moonglow Signing

000-moonglow-chabon

Author Michael Chabon presents his new novel MOONGLOW at the Diesel Bookstore on Wednesday December 14, 2016 at 7:00 PM.

In MOONGLOW, Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon turns his own family history into fiction as he imagines the murky origins and murkier fate of Chabon Scientific Company, a mail-order novelty business.  This expansive narrative unfolds as an old man’s deathbed confession to his grandson; over the course of his final week, the man leaves a dizzying legacy of half-revealed secrets and shocking revelations as he looks back over a tumultuous century and relives scenes from an impoverished childhood in south Philadelphia, wartime Europe, a prison in upstate New York, and the American space program.

About this author:
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — an epic novel that charts 16 years in the lives of Sammy Clay and Joe Kavalier, two Jewish cousins who create a popular series of comic books in the early 1940s, the years leading up to the U.S. entry into World War II. In addition to novels, including the now-classic Wonder Boys, Chabon has also produced short stories, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.
