Ticket Information:
A $35 ticket admits ONE person to the signing line and includes ONE hardcover copy of “Hail to the Chin.” Tickets available at left-bank.com/campbell.

Event Guidelines:
– This event is a BOOKSIGNING ONLY. Bruce will not be speaking at this event.
– You must purchase a ticket to enter the signing line. Your place in the signing line is first-come, first-served, and will be determined by when you arrive.

It’s been 15 years since his first memoir, but Bruce Campbell is still living the dream as a “B” movie king in an “A” movie world. Bruce makes his triumphant return from where he left off in “If Chins Could Kill” with further hilarious, gut-wrenchingly honest confessions. Bruce brings us through his life in the decade since his first memoir and his roles as varied as they are numerous—from his roles in the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential “My Name is Bruce” to his role on #1 show “Burn Notice” and his new STARZ hit series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” “Hail to the Chin” will be bursting with pictures and the signature humor that Bruce brought to “If Chins Could Kill” and will be devoured by his legions of fans across the country.
