Join us on Sunday, November 10, for a conversation and book signing with producer and author Harry Thomason, held in partnership with the Clinton School of Public Service and the Central Arkansas Library System. Thomason will discuss his new book, Brother Dog: Southern Tales and Hollywood Adventures, a humor-laced episodic memoir that tells the story of a working-class childhood in the rural South during the 1950s and 60s, striving to become a filmmaker on an ever-expanding stage, helping elect a friend to the presidency, and anecdotal encounters with Chuck Berry, Prime Minister Tony Blair and other luminaries, all rich in imagery, grit, and humor.
