Sarah Miles Bolam

A former journalist looks at presidents on film

No matter who we elect as our next president, you can be sure there will eventually be a film about him — or her. From silent shorts of Teddy Roosevelt to Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, presidents just seem to make for good movies — just ask Sarah Miles Bolam at today’s Brazos Books reading and signing. Bolam wrote The Presidents on Film: A Comprehensive Filmography of Portrayals from George Washington to George W. Bush. Bolam, who was an international reporter, can tell you all about how presidents made it to the big screen 407 times in the last one hundred years; some as dignified world leaders, some as cartoonish buffoons, some as something in between. 7 p.m. 2421 Bissonnet.

Mon., March 3, 7 p.m., 2008
