Join Metuchen Matters at our very own virtual book club TONIGHT (7:30 PM) at the Raconteur for a free FUN event! Our first book ME AND ORSON WELLES is a beautifully-rendered, hilariously funny valentine to first love, Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater, by Metuchen's Robert Kaplow! The book has already been adapted into a film starring America's sweetheart Troy Bolton (I mean, Zac Efron!), directed by Dazed and Confused auteur Richard Linklater (US release date TBD).

JOIN US FOR A GREAT DISCUSSION WITH THE AUTHOR! BUY YOUR COPY RIGHT  AT THE RACONTEUR! Even if you haven't read the book, feel free to come and see Robert's presentation on the adaptation of his book into a film. He will also read from the novel and take some questions from the audience. It's sure to be an entertaining event!

Wine and refreshments will be served. Many thanks to Robert Kaplow and Alex Dawson for helping make this endeavor possible!

Robert, thank you for sharing your thrilling experience and photos from the movie shoot. It was exciting to see the behind-the-scenes action and your words coming to life. Congratulations on your wonderful novel and here is to the success of the adaptation. Alex, as always, thanks for making everyone feel at home in your shop.

I thoroughly enjoyed last night's book meeting. Robert was so interesting and Alex of course was the most gracious host. Thanks to all. I am looking forward to attending another event soon!

Robert, what a fabulous night! Your presentation was fun and exciting and insightful. You have the voice of both artist and fan. Thanks for sharing your story with us. Alex, thanks for being such a gracious host.

He will discuss the film adaptation and the adventure of the book coming into print and then into a film--plus we can ask questions about the specifics of the story, too--I believe he did a lot of his work at the Metuchen library!

If it's similar to when he spoke at the Library, Kaplow's presentation is excellent. Very interesting stories on how the book came about and adventure in becoming a film. Even if you haven't read the book you should come and hear him speak.
