“Whether you find movies about D.C. just amusing, entertaining bagatelles or infuriating mash-ups of reality, this . . . book on how American cinema has treated both politics and the town defined by it can offer, at its best, some intriguing insights into Washington history and lore.”

This evening of discussion will be held to mark the Foggy Bottom Association's January membership meeting and is sponsored as well by the West End Cinema and the West End Library Friends.

The author will sign books immediately following this discussion. The first 30 attendees will receive a voucher for a beer and popcorn!
