"This is a must-own book." - Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River
What is our infatuation with stardom and celebrities? Join us for an evening with celebrated Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr, as he discusses his new book Gods Like Us. Burr will screen film examples and rove across the 10,000+ films he's seen to give a fascinating window into fame, from the dawn of moving pictures to the pseudo-celebrity marketplace of the Internet.
Ty Burr is the film critic for "The Boston Globe" and previously wrote for "Entertainment Weekly" for over a decade.
