Join us as we pay tribute to one of Hollywood’s most iconic stars – screen legend Rock Hudson. Mark Griffin, author of All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson and Steve Hayes, host of “Tired Old Queen at The Movies” will examine the life and career of the Oscar-nominated leading man. Following a reading by the author, Griffin and Hayes will discuss Hudson’s nearly forty year career, which encompassed film (“Giant,” “Pillow Talk”), television (“McMillan & Wife,” “Dynasty”) and theatre (“Camelot,” “On The Twentieth Century”). In the spirit of the season, we’ll be raffling off some fabulous Rock-related prizes. Copies of All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson will be available for signing. The Bureau is ready to Rock!
