Tickets include a copy of Hanks’ debut novel The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece.

One of the most respected actors and filmmakers of our time, Tom Hanks (Big, Forrest Gump, Philadelphia, Charlie Wilson’s War) is an avid reader. He made his fiction debut in 2017 with Uncommon Type, a collection of seventeen short stories all revolving around typewriters, and has now penned a wildly ambitious first novel, The Making of Another Motion Picture Masterpiece. Born in the San Francisco Bay Area and the product of public education, Hanks is a staunch and enthusiastic advocate for community colleges, crediting the two years he spent at Chabot College with enabling his future acting and writing career.

City Arts & Lectures’ Covid protocol follows San Francisco Department of Public Health guidelines and/or requirements of the featured guests. At this time, masks are encouraged but not required. Policy subject to change.
