Hollywood on the Potomac

Author Talk with Mike Canning

Hollywood on the PotomacMike Canning's Hollywood on the Potomac is the first comprehensive book to investigate how Washington, D.C. is portrayed in American films spanning from the 1940s to 2011. In this close-to-home inspection of some of Washington, D.C.'s most famous appearances in American film, Mike Canning exposes the laughable, memorable, and occasionally reproachable appearances of our nation's capital on the big screen. For fans of politics, history, and film, Hollywood on the Potomac provides the reader with production notes, location goofs, and the trials and errors of filming on-location in Washington, D.C. 

Please join us on May 29 at 7 p.m. for a presentation and Q&A with the author, local resident, Mike Canning. Following the presentation, he will be signing and selling copies of his book.
