Saratoga Book Festival, Saratoga Springs Public Library, and Home Made Theater are pleased to present Mark Harris in Conversation with Audrey Kupferberg. 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 even-handed 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 in the worlds of theater and motion pictures have ever seen. He will be joined in conversation by film historian and WAMC commentator, Audrey Kupferberg.
