Prairie Lights Presents Bruce Campbell

Bruce Campbell will read from and talk about his new book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor. The reading will be followed by a Q&A and signing.

Ticket holders will receive a copy of Hail to the Chin at the event, and will have the opportunity to have it signed by Campbell.

In this new memoir, Campbell shares hilarious, gut-wrenchingly honest confessions of living the dream as a “B” movie king in an “A” movie world. Bruce Campbell, whose fame began with the 1979 film Evil Dead, has appeared in roles as varied as they are numerous- from appearing in the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential My Name is Bruce to his role on #1 show Burn Notice and his new STARZ hit series Ash vs Evil Dead. Over the last 15 years, he has become a regular on the Wizard World convention circuit, has created his @GroovyBruce twitter account with over 400,000 followers and a Facebook page with almost 250,000 likes. He is the author of back-to-back New York Times bestsellers, Make Love! the Bruce Campbell Way, and If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of A B Movie Actor.

“Once cited as the “Laurence Olivier of bad movies,” no actor has done more with a strong chin and questionable scripts than Bruce Campbell.” — Mental Floss
