For 50 years, acclaimed actor Hal Holbrook has vividly brought characters to life on the stage and screen. His new memoir, Harold: The Boy Who Became Mark Twain, reveals how he overcame childhood abandonment to reach such success. Publishers Weekly calls Harold "movingly honest" and Robert Redford says it's a "beautifully composed story of self-determination and survival." See Hal Holbrook live in an intimate setting as details the sacrifices and difficult choices he's made along the way in his storied career.
Hal Holbrook has starred in such films as All the President's Men, Wall Street, and The Firm. He has won five prime-time Emmy Awards for his work in television, and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2008 for his role in Into the Wild. He has done his one man show as Mark Twain since 1954.
Robert Patrick is one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood today-often playing the memorable yet terrifying villain. His role in Terminator 2 made him famous. He's also played Johnny Cash's father in the film Walk the Line and Elvis's father in the Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning TV mini-series Elvis. A skilled martial artist who has also appeared on The X-Files and The Sopranos, Patrick was once called one of the Ten Sexiest Men of Sci-Fi, and often rides in a charity motorcycle fundraiser called the Love Ride.
