About the event

Film reviewer and former Nevada Film Commissioner Robin Holabird will present her latest book, Around the World in 80 Movies. on Sunday, October 17, 2019 at Sundance Bookstore, 121 California Avenue, in Reno, Nevada.

In this highly imaginative blend of film locations, memories, and colorful travel essays, Robin Holabird offers an extensive and entertaining exploration of film locations far and wide, close to home, and everywhere in between. She explores heights at a summit of Machu Picchu and King Kong's adventures at the top of the Empire State Building. She examines film noir sites in San Francisco, romance in Paris, art in the Nevada desert for Burning Man, and Provence in the South of France. She takes her readers on epic journeys to Jordan, Scotland, and Egypt, among other exotic places, all the while providing insights and witty travel advice.

Around the World in 80 Movies is the work of a film location mastermind and engaging travel companion who will delight and enlighten readers with her clever and piquant mixture of film lore and travel experiences.

Robin Holabird is also the author of Elvis, Marilyn, and the Space Aliens: Icons on Screen in Nevada. A regular film reviewer for Reno Public Radio, she scouted film locations as a film commissioner for the Nevada Film Office and has traveled the world discovering favorite movie sites. She lives in Reno, Nevada, with her husband.
