Halberstam Selected As Next Out of the Book Author

Powell’s has made their choice for the next “Out of the Book” film after debuting the concept with Ian McEwan‘s ON CHESIL BEACH. This time, they will debut a film based on David Halberstam‘s THE COLDEST WINTER: AMERICA AND THE KOREAN WAR, published by Hyperion on September 25. The 28-minute film will be produced by series creator Dave Weich of Powell’s Books. The director is once again Doug Biro of Hudson River Films.

Shelf Awareness further reports that the movie will premier on November 11, when McNally-Robinson shows it at Two Boots Pioneer Theater. Between November 12 and December 15, the film will be shown across the country at events hosted by 75 independent booksellers that, as with the Ian McEwan film (shown by 54 booksellers), will include panel discussions, live music, special guests – the latter part especially important in light of Halberstam’s recent passing. The film will rely on some of Halberstam’s friends and feature commentary from Joan Didion, Seymour Hersh, Robert Caro and Bob Woodward.
