The fine folks at the Screenwriters Workshop have pulled off another minor coup by arranging for former City Pages scribe and now memoir-writer Jennifer Vogel, and British screenwriter Jez Butterworth will talk about the adaptation of Vogel's book "Flim Flam Man."
It's the story of Vogel's relationship with her father, a counterfeiter on the run from the Feds.
The book won great critical acclaim when it came out a couple year back and now it's being adapted for the company which made 'The Kite Runner' 'The Quiet American' and 'The Talented Mr Ripley.'
Vogel and Butterworth will appear at the Dowling Studio at the Guthrie on October 16th to watch a cast reading of the script.
It will be an opportunity to hear an early version of the film and to get some insight into the film making process.
