Leave it to Powells to come up with something so cool:
Ian McEwan will be the subject of the first Out of the Book movie to be made by Powell’s Books, and the director will be Doug Biro, a former RCA Records creative director and director of music videos for Christina Aguilera and Rufus Wainwright, according to today’s New York Times.
The 23-minute video will be unveiled at BEA and shown at screenings June 13-17 through more than 50 bookstores across the country. McEwan’s new novel, On Chesil Beach, will be published on June 5 by Nan A. Talese/Random House. Except for his appearances in the video, McEwan will not tour U.S. bookstores for this title.
