John Hughes: A Life in Film Free Reading and Book Signing at the Last Bookstore

March 23, 2015 by Brian Champlin

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!
