Hang With Elmore Leonard Tonight
There are still tickets left for his Writers Bloc talk with producer Walter Mirisch, tonight, in Los Angeles, at the WGA Theatre.

Details: Friday, May 25, 2007 at the Writer's Guild Theatre, 135 South Doheny Drive, Beverly Hills, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20. Reservations: 310.335.0917 or online. From the Writers Bloc site:

Elmore Leonard, clearly one our favorite novelists on the planet, chats with legendary producer Walter Mirisch. Elmore Leonard is the author of more than forty novels, and his new one, "Up in Honey's Room," takes us to Detroit during WWII. We meet free-thinking beautiful girls, escaped German prisoners of war, sociopathic Himmler admirers, and get to reacquaint ourselves with Carl Webster, star of a recent Elmore Leonard novel, "The Hot Kid." As always, our only regret about the book is that it ends. Walter Mirisch produced some of the most enduring movies of our time, including "In the Heat of the Night," "The Magnificent Seven," and "West Side Story," to name but a few.

Elmore wrote the screenplay for (Mirisch's) Mr. Majestyk in 1973 and began his long friendship with Walter to whom he dedicated his “Hollywood” novel, Get Shorty with:
To Walter Mirisch, One of the Good Guys.”

The Writer’s Bloc is Andrea Grossman’s celebrated conversation series which puts interesting and sometimes controversial in the arts and politics together on stage for some free form discussion. Elmore has done Writer’s Bloc three times before with Martin Amis, Scott Frank and Judy Muller.
