Scott Eyman, former literary and art critic for the The Palm Beach Post and author of 11 books, will be the featured speaker. Scott will be talking about his latest book that he co-authored with actor Robert Wagner , You Must Remember This, which is being released in March. Eyman promises to delve into movie star life behind the scenes which should make for an interesting conversation.
A reviewer on www.goodreads.com commented,” With a career spanning more than five decades, few actors are more qualified to recount the glamorous Hollywood era of the late 1940’s and early 1950’s than Robert Wagner. You Must Remember This is Wagner’s ode to a bygone age, to its incomparable style and how it was displayed, and to its legendary stars. Wagner revisits the houses, restaurants, and other haunts of Hollywood’s elite, offering an intimate view of their lives on and off screen. He fondly recounts mythic figures simply entertaining at home among friends, away from the publicity machine and public eye that morphed into today’s paparazzi culture. Wagner also discusses the business of Hollywood and its evolution from an industry once dominated by moguls to one run by agents, and examines the career arcs of his peers, carefully considering why some survived and others faded. Engaging and entertaining, You Must Remember This is a window into the splendors of an erstwhile era and an opportunity for readers to live vicariously through one its most beloved leading men”.
Barnes and Noble will be selling books and guests at the luncheon will be able to purchase a signed copy of his latest publication. Scott will also be a moderator at BookMania! on March 8 at Martin County High School.
Mr. Eyman has penned a biography “John Wayne: The Life and Legend”, scheduled for release on April 1, 2014.
