Diary of a Lost Girl, from book to film
Sunday, Nov 14th at 1:00pm (Louise Brooks birthday!)
Koret Auditorium, San Francisco Public Library (100 Larkin St. at Grove)
The celebrated 1929 Louise Brooks film, Diary of a Lost Girl, is based on a controversial and bestselling book first published in Germany in 1905. Though little known today, it was a sensation at the beginning of the 20th century. Thomas Gladysz, Director of the Louise Brooks Society and the editor of a new edition of The Diary of a Lost Girl (PandorasBox Press, 2010), will discuss the book's remarkable history and relationship to the acclaimed silent film. A book signing and Q & A will follow a screening of the G.W. Pabst film.
This special event is free and open to the public. More info at http://sfpl.org/index.php?pg=1002352301
