Author Scott Voisin will be at Dark Delicacies Bookstore in Burbank, CA on Saturday, September 6, signing copies of his newly published Character Kings 2. The book is the second in his series of interview-style volumes where noted (and not so noted) character actors discuss their varied roles and the business of film making. Friend of MMW Tim Ferrante is the cover designer. Tim was the person who alerted me about this book. It is published by Bear Manor Media, who specialize in works on film and pop culture. If you're in the Burbank area during this time, stop by, say hello, and pick up a copy.
Here is the press release for Character Kings 2:
