Michael Moore: Here Comes Trouble
Award-winning filmmaker and author Michael Moore is one of the most divisive figures in modern media. The director of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Capitalism: A Love Story, he's either seen as a bastion of sanity against a corrupt world, or burned in effigy as a socialist rabble-rouser. In his films, Moore has turned the spotlight on various political topics, but today he'll offer fans something a little different with his reading of Here Comes Trouble, a collection of personal memories.
Speaking with the blunt honesty of a Winston Groom character, Moore relates how as young boy lost in the Senate building, he ran into Robert Kennedy, how he spent time with a befuddled Ronald Reagan when he went to lay a wreath in Bitburg, and how his encounter with a helpful priest led to a lesson in how to exorcise oneself.
Throughout his career, we've known Moore only as an irreverent provocateur. Here Comes Trouble offers a rare glimpse into the man behind the mayhem. 7:30 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-523-0701 or visit www.brazosbookstore.com. Free.
