Congratulations to Jack and Jennifer on the completion of their book! I am looking forward to yet another theatre history treat. Jack’s book, Theatres of San Francisco, is a work I have revisited repeatedly, at times to check on a specific theatre for my own knowledge/research, and sometimes just because this book is such fun to page through. Jennifer contacted me regarding a couple of knowledge tidbits for the book. I don’t know yet if she was able to make use of them in the final product, but no matter, it was a pleasure to meet her over the phone—she was most gracious. And Jack’s contageous enthusiastic storytelling talents in the area of both the fun and the rigours of exhibition—which are so engaging in person—come through very clearly via the printed word.

Great news! Having been raised in the East Bay, I’m looking forward to this one almost as much as I was to Jack’s recent (and superb) book on San Francisco theatres. I’m on my way to Amazon to place my order right now. Thanks Jack!
