READ: SITTING DOWN WITH THE STARS
Now available
Former SF Chronicle columnist Ruthe Stein invites you to read her new book featuring interviews with 100 Hollywood legends. From locals Don Johnson to Robin Williams, to new stars Jennifer Hudson to Justin Timberlake, to legends like Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. This delicious read is literally bursting at the spine with stars and a must-read for anyone who loves film and Stein quite clearly does. Her interviews almost always reveal something new and in each case, she takes you there, to the moment the star arrives: out of a limo like Whitney Houston, into hotel rooms and onto red carpets. I highly recommend this wonderful read and to quote Jeffrey M. Anderson: “Full of wonderful moments with stars at their most human.”
