Tom Hanks in Conversation

VENUE CHANGE: This event will now take place at Keller Auditorium.

The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece is a novel about the making of a star-studded, multimillion-dollar superhero action film…and the humble comic books that inspired it. Funny, touching, and wonderfully thought-provoking, while also capturing the changes in America and American culture since World War II.
