Nonfiction Book Club

August 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am



This month, we will discuss Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert changed movies forever by Matt Singer.

Before there was Rotten Tomatoes, there was Siskel and Ebert.  These two film critics from rival Chicago newspapers reluctantly joined forces in 1975 for a new movie review show on PBS.  Over the next 20+ years, while battling both onscreen and off, Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert created a delightful show, an iconic brand, and a genuine friendship.  

In this book, award-winning editor and film critic Matt Singer chronicles their journey. 


Copies of this book are available at the library. 

Our discussion will be held over Zoom (the BFL is closed on Saturdays in the summer).  Please register here to receive the meeting details:
