Two authors to visit Omaha Public Library in November

Two authors to visit Omaha Public Library in November
October 28, 2013
Omaha Public Library (OPL) is pleased to welcome two visiting authors in November. Omaha local Leo Adam Biga will present from his book, Alexander Payne: His Journey in Film, and Washington, D.C. journalist Marianne Szegedy-Maszak will present her debut book, I Kiss Your Hands Many Times. These events provide an opportunity to meet authors and learn more about the inspiration behind their work. All events are free and books will be available for purchase and signing following most author discussions. Register at or call the hosting OPL location.

Leo Adam Biga’s book is a compilation of many articles he has written about writer and director Alexander Payne over a 16-year period. The book shares Payne's creative process and follows the progress of the cinema artist's Oscar-winning career. Biga will share insights gleaned from visits to Payne's sets and from a recent glimpse at the final edit-mix process on the filmmaker's new feature, Nebraska.
