The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Home Alone… if your were at all influenced by classic 80’s movies during your formative years (*raises hand*) then you’re familiar with the work of writer/director John Hughes. Now, nearly six years after his passing, here’s a unique chance to look back at his amazing career.
Kirk Honeycutt, the former chief film critic at the The Hollywood Reporter, has a new book out entitled John Hughes: A Life in Film, a tribute to the man who had writing credits on 46 films, including 23 that he produced and 8 that he directed. Included in the new work are interviews with stars and collaborators such as Judd Nelson, Matthew Broderick, Christopher Columbus, Steve Martin, and more.
Honeycutt will be doing a free reading and book signing this Wednesday evening at the Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles starting at 730pm. If you’re a big Hughes buff, be sure to check it out!
When: Wednesday March 25, 730-830pm
Where: The Last Bookstore, 453 S Spring St – Ground Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90013
