Farran Smith Nehme

Wednesday January 7: 7:00PM 8:00PM

Beat the chill with the Strand and Farran Smith Nehme as we celebrate the release of her book Missing Reels, about a girl who ditches a small town in favor of the glamorous but fading old movie houses of New York City. What she finds in New York--romance, intrigue, a secretly famous silent movie star in the apartment below--rival the dramatic revelations of the old Hollywood films that inspired the novel itself.

Farran’s invited a panel of film experts, including Vanity Fair’s James Wolcott; critic and author of the fan favorite Wes Anderson Collection Matt Zoller Seitz; and Anne Helen Petersen, author of the recent release Scandals of Classic Hollywood. It’s a must for film buffs and Hollywood historians alike!
