Evening @ the Barn: Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine
Acclaimed author Anthony Slide will go "Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine" with an Evening @ the Barn celebrating this fascinating and indispensable chapter in journalism and popular culture. A Power Point presentation will accompany Mr. Slide's talk. Guests will learn how the fan magazines dealt with gossip and innuendo and how they handled nationwide issues such as Hollywood scandals of the 1920s, World War II, and the blacklist. Slide's book "Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine" will be on sale in the museum shop and he will be signing the book at the end of the program.
Author Leonard Maltin says: "For anyone who equates 'fan magazines' with supermarket tabloids, this book should come as a revelation. Tony Slide has done a formidable job of research to chart the birth, rise, and fall of Hollywood fan magazines in the twentieth century, their relationship to the industry they covered, and the readers they served. It's a colorful, well-told history that's full of surprises." Hollywood Heritage is pleased to have Mr. Slide on hand for this very unique program.
