After a very happy Season 2 launch of BOOKS ‘n’ BOTTLES™ last month, plans are well under way to celebrate Rory Flynn’s arrival in Chicago on May 16th. The daughter of film legend Errol Flynn will be personally signing copies of her memoir, The Baron of Mulholland, while sipping wine with guests from 6-8 p.m. at TASTE Food and Wine. A sampling of Rory Flynn talking about her famous father can be seen online.
Honoring Errol’s native land, the wine tasting will feature three notable Australians: a Riesling, a Chardonnay and a Sparkling Shiraz. TCM’s film historian, Robert Osborne, described Rory’s book as “fascinating” and “revealing”, showing “a side of Papa the public has not been exposed to before.” In addition to books and wine for purchase, our popular Bonus Buy tickets will also be available at the event for mementos, discount on wine, restaurants and extra goodies.
Rory Flynn will be joined by Taryn Power Greendeer (daughter of Tyrone Power) at the Pickwick Theatre on May 17th. The program begins with live prelude music at 7 p.m., an on-stage appearance by the daughters of Hollywood idols Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power, a screening of the 1935 classic film, Captain Blood (the first pairing of Flynn and Olivia de Havilland), and several surprises. Copies of The Baron of Mulholland and Searching for My Father, Tyrone Power, will be available for sale and personal autographing.
