New Year’s Eve and More Book Events

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! I hope that 2022 saw good things for everyone, and a return to something of a normal life. Though we’re all still trying to keep COVID at bay, I was able to attend so many more events this year, and realized how much I had missed them.

Tonight, I’ll be doing one of those in-person events at the Niles Essanay Film Museum in the Niles district of Fremont, CA. We’ll be showing Zander the Great, a very exciting, genre-defying film from 1925 and Marion Davies’s first film to be made solely in California. It’s a film that is quite rarely seen–but thanks to some stellar preservation work in the past year and a DVD release from the great Ben Model at Undercrank Productions, we now have it publicly available.

I’ll be signing books afterward. The activities start at 7:30–seeing a movie at Niles really is the best deal in town, because for a measly $8, you get vintage cartoons, a movie with an intermission, and almost always an informative talk beforehand. If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, come and join us.

GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT!

Also, I wanted to tell you about Marion Davies as Star of the Month on TCM next month. Unfortunately, we couldn’t make it work for me to come on and introduce the movies, but I’m doing a big giveaway of Captain of Her Soul next month to coincide with TCM’s Star of the Month programming! Here’s how to enter this week:
