Manuel Munoz Pairs Author Reading with Psycho Screening

On his current book tour, novelist Manuel Munoz has added a film screening of Alfred Hitchcock‘s Psycho to a few book signing events. What author and movie pairings would you like to see in the future?

On May 9th, Munoz will be at the Wilmette Theatre in Illinois for a Psycho screening, signing copies of What You See in the Dark and talking about how the Hitchcock film influenced his book.

Here’s more about the book: “The setting is Bakersfield, California, in the late 1950s. A dusty, quiet town, too far from Los Angeles to share that city’s energy, yet close enough to Hollywood to fill its citizens with the kinds of dreams they discover in the darkness of the movie theater. For Teresa, a young, aspiring singer who works at the shoe store, her dream lies in the music her mother shared with her, plaintive songs of love and longing. And in Dan Watson, the most desirable young man in Bakersfield, she believes she has found someone to help her realize those dreams.”
