Saratoga Book Festival Online: Mark Harris in Conversation with Audrey Kupferberg April 22

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Springs Public Library, Saratoga Book Festival, and Home Made Theater present “Mark Harris in Conversation with Audrey Kupferberg,” at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 22. 

In “Mike Nichols: A Life,” author and journalist Mark Harris offers the first full-scale biography of the celebrated film director, stage director, and improv comedian. Harris interviewed over 250 people for this book, including Elaine May, Meryl Streep, Stephen Sondheim, Robert Redford, Glenn Close, Tom Hanks, Candice Bergen, Emma Thompson, Annette Bening, Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, Lorne Michaels, and Gloria Steinem. In it, he gives an intimate and evenhanded accounting of success and failure alike; the portrait is not always flattering, but its ultimate impact is to present the full story of one of the most interesting, complicated, and consequential figures the worlds of theater and motion pictures have ever seen. He will be joined in conversation by film historian and WAMC commentator, Audrey Kupferberg.

Harris is the author of Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War, and Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood, which was named a notable book of the year, by the New York Times and the American Library Association.
