Description of Pictures: Great Books to Great Movies:
Why are we drawn to movies based on the books we love? Is seeing believing or is reading enough? In this dynamic multimedia presentation and panel discussion, four great American novelists discuss and present film clips from movies that were based on their books. They are:
E.L. Doctorow, who will discuss “Ragtime” (1982), one of many movies made from his Pulitzer Prize-nominated and National Book Award-winning novels. Doctorow has just won the 2014 Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction.
Alice McDermott, whose novella “That Night”—a finalist for the National Book Award, Pen/Faulkner Award and Pulitzer Prize—was made into a movie in 1992
Paul Auster, author of many prize-winning books as well as scripts and co-producer and scriptwriter for the 1995 movie “Smoke.”
Lisa See, best-selling author of numerous novels set in China and America, will talk about the most recent movie made from one of her books, “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” (2011).
The discussion will be moderated by Ann Hornaday, film critic for The Washington Post, and hosted by the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division of the Library of Congress.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2014 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used my Fuji XS-1 camera but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year: three Civil War Trust conferences (Winchester, VA in March; Nashville, TN in May, and Atlanta, GA in September), Michigan to visit mom in the hospice before she died (June), annual trip out west for San Diego Comic-Con (including Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Sacramento, Oakland, and Los Angeles) (July), and Michigan for mom's tribute event (July).
Ego strokes: Paul Dickson used one of my photos as the author photo in his book "Aphorisms: Words Wrought by Writers".
Number of photos taken this year: just over 470,000.
