Robin Holabird Author Talk
July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Author, film expert, and world traveler Robin Holabird talks about Reno screen icons and other movie matters during Artown. A former board member and president of Sierra Arts Foundation, Robin writes regularly about films and their locations, with her weekly program airing on Reno’s NPR affiliate KUNR at 88.7 FM every Friday. She also provides film commentary for KOH. Her newest book Around the World in 80 Movies, published by Ice Cube Press, shows the link between films and travel destinations. Her first book, Elvis, Marilyn and the Space Aliens, explores how movies and television programs affect Nevada’s public image. Both books reflect Holabird’s longtime experience as a film commissioner for the state of Nevada, where she worked with Clint Eastwood, Taylor Hackford, PT Anderson and other directors on such projects as Love Ranch, Sister Act and CSI. She honed writing skills with a degree in Journalism from Humboldt State University and reporting stints at KOLO, the Sparks Tribune and other media outlets. She earned certification and a Master’s in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Nevada-Reno. An outdoor enthusiast who loves photographing locations throughout the world, Robin is a regular hiker and runner who finished the Boston Marathon six times.
