An Evening with Author and Actress Illeana Douglas

June 27, 6:30 pm7:30 pm.

Illeana Douglas’s new book Connecticut in the Movies is filled with behind the scenes stories as well as her own personal snapshots of Connecticut. Douglas takes the reader on a cinematic road trip through Hollywood history and Connecticut geography, defining how the perception of on-screen Connecticut, originally created in Hollywood, has shifted more than any other New England state. The Constitution State has been the location for over 200 feature films, yet these cinematic contributions have long gone unrecognized. Connecticut in the Movies is not only a keepsake for denizens of the state but a valuable resource for film buffs everywhere. Douglas is also the author of I Blame Dennis Hopper (2015).
