Film historian Cari Beauchamp upcoming Bay Area events

Cari Beauchamp, the acclaimed film historian and author of Without Lying Down: Frances Marion and the Powerful Women of Early Hollywood, will be speaking about her new book, Joseph P. Kennedy Presents: His Hollywood Year, at three events in the Bay Area next week. 

Beauchamp will be at Book Passage in Corte Madera on Wednesday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m., at Le Petit Trianon Theatre in San Jose on Thursday, April 16 at 6:30 p.m., and at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Friday, April 17 at noon. The last two events are ticketed. For details, see the links above.

I plan to attend the Book Passage event. Anyone interested in the Kennedy family or film history should take in one of Beauchamp’s upcoming events. She is an entertaining and informative speaker. And what's more, Louise Brooks is referenced a few times in Beauchamp’s latest work. Here is a link to an article I wrote about the author and her new book.
