My Next Alexander Payne Book Event Comes to Florence

Looking for something different to do on your Tuesday night?

Then come to my next Alexander Payne book event:

Tuesday, Nov. 20, 6:15 pm,

Florence Branch Library, 2920 Bondesson St., Omaha

Your favorite Omaha writer talks about “Alexander Payne: His Journey in Film – A Reporter’s Perspective”

I am just returned from the set of Payne’s new film, “Nebraska,” and I will share my impressions of that production.  My highly praised book about the filmmaker and his work will be available for purchase.  It’s only $19.95.   I will personally sign copies.

The book makes a great gift for the movie lover(s) in your life.

Get yourself a copy of the book and find out why it’s receiving such generous praise as this:

“Alexander is a master. Many say the art of filmmaking comes from experience and grows with age and wisdom but, in truth, he was a master on day one of his first feature. Leo Biga has beautifully captured Alexander’s incredible journey in film for us all to savor.” – Laura Dern, actress, star of “Citizen Ruth”

“Leo Biga brings us a fascinating, comprehensive, insightful portrait of the work and artistry of Alexander Payne. Mr. Biga’s collection of essays document the evolution and growth of this significant American filmmaker and he includes relevant historical context of the old Hollywood and the new. His keen reporter’s eye gives the reader an exciting journey into the art of telling stories on film.” – Ron Hull, Nebraska Educational Television legend, University of Nebraska emeritus professor of broadcasting, author of “Backstage”

“Alexander Payne is one of American cinema’s leading lights. How fortunate we are that Leo Biga has chronicled his rise to success so thoroughly.” – Leonard Maltin, film critic and best selling author

“I’d be an Alexander Payne fan even if we didn’t share a Nebraska upbringing: he is a masterly, menschy, singular storyteller whose movies are both serious and unpretentious, delightfully funny and deeply moving.  And he’s fortunate indeed to have such a thoughtful and insightful chronicler as Leo Biga.” – Kurt Andersen, novelist (“True Believers”) and “Studio 360  host

I am counting on my Blog followers and Facebook friends to come out and show support.  

Hope to see you there.
