Things To Do Around Town
One of the many reasons folks end up buying real estate in Marin is that there is no shortage of things to get out and do for fun within minutes. The passion that people have for life here is infectious. This energy comes out in creativity, hard work, and sense of wanting to do something that makes our community proud. But like most things in life, the journey is usually the interesting part. Which leads me to today's post about an upcoming event that you're not going to want to miss. First, a little background.
How to make something out of nothing
When identical twin brothers, and Marin products, Logan and Noah Miller’s homeless father died alone in a jail cell, they vowed, come hell or high water that their film, Touching Home, would be made as a dedication to their love for him. Either You’re In Or You’re In The Way is the amazing story of how--without a dime to their names nor a single meaningful contact in Hollywood--they managed to write, produce, act, and direct a feature film in under a year starring four-time Academy Award-nominated actor Ed Harris and a cast and crew with 11 Academy Awards and 26 nominations.
Join Us In The Celebration
Bookstock 2009! is the music, art & movie festival that will help launch the Miller brother's movie and their book, that is the story behind the story, into the stratosphere. Now is your chance to ensure access to this summer celebration of art for the whole family. There will be food, entertainment and plenty of children's activities. Some of the proceeds will benefit the Giants Community Fund.
Attendees will also enjoy a night of live music provided by top Bay Area bands including Stroke 9, Eoin Harrington, and the Monophonics, a live art show featuring 25 renowned artists, and an advanced screening of Logan and Noah Miller’s film "Touching Home," starring 4-time Academy Award nominee Ed Harris; the movie that inspired it all! Plus, the book release and signing of the Miller brother's exhilarating memoir Either You're In or You're in The Way, published by HarperCollins April 28.
