A possible new book

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle ran an article yesterday about Jack Garner, the film critic who is retiring. Jack is a nationally syndicated journalist, and a longtime fixture on the Rochester arts scene. Jack is also a friend to all those interested in Louise Brooks. Not only had Garner known the actress in Rochester (where he has worked since the early 1970's), he had also interviewed Brooks and contributed the forward to the recent book by Peter Cowie, Louise Brooks: Lulu Forever.

Garner will continue to contribute articles to the newspaper. And interestingly, the article mentions that "Garner has several book ideas that have been percolating, including one for children and one about former silent movie star Louise Brooks, who spent the latter part of her life in Rochester."

A possible new book!
