Matt Singer Author Talk – Opposable Thumbs
Join author Matt Singer live at the UNITED for a conversation on his new book Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies Forever moderated by Tony Nunes (copies of Opposable Thumbs will be on-sale at The United before and after the talk from Bank Square Books). In Opposable Thumbs, award-winning editor and film critic Matt Singer eavesdrops on Siskel & Ebert’s iconic balcony set, detailing their rise from making a few hundred dollars a week on local Chicago PBS to securing multimillion-dollar contracts for a syndicated series and forever influencing the way we talk about (and think about) movies. Matt Singer is the editor and film critic of ScreenCrush.com and a member of the New York Film Critics Circle. He won a Webby Award for his work on the Independent Film Channel’s website, IFC.com, and is the author of Marvel’s Spider-Man: From Amazing to Spectacular.
