Biographer/Filmmaker John Baxter at The American Library in Paris




John Baxter, Australian veteran Biographer and Filmmaker, will be speaking at The American Library in Paris this Wednesday Feb. 2nd at 19:30 as part of ALP's Evenings with an Author Series.

A prolific journalist, writer and filmmaker, Baxter has called Paris home since 1989. Combining two of his loves, he has written several biographies on filmmakers including: Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas, Federico Fellini, Stephen Spielberg, Woody Allen, Luis Bunuel amongst others. He's written short stories, novels, documentaries, television series, and currently co-directs the annual Paris Writer's Workshop. And this is only the beginning of a long list of illustrious achievements.

Below is a very short interview with John Baxter about his book "Immoveable Feast: A Paris Christmas".
And I can promise you, if I were in Paris on Wednesday, you would find me here!

You reminded me - A friend gave me 'Immovable Feast' for Christmas years ago and I haven't read it yet! Now I must.
