Literary Arts presents a special event with legendary actor, filmmaker, and writer Tom Hanks, in conversation about his new novel The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece.

Tom Hanks has won Academy Awards for best actor for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump. He has starred in, among many other films, BigSleepless in SeattleApollo 13Saving Private RyanThe Green MileCast AwayCatch Me If You CanCaptain PhillipsBridge of SpiesSullyToy StoryThe Post, and It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. His writing has appeared in The New York TimesVanity Fair, and The New Yorker. He is also the author of a best-selling collection of stories, Uncommon Type.

The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece is a novel about the making of a star-studded, multimillion-dollar superhero action film…and the humble comic books that inspired it. Funny, touching, and wonderfully thought-provoking, while also capturing the changes in America and American culture since World War II.
