Why See Tom Hanks - In Conversation?
America's best-known actor launches his debut anthology!
Academy Award-winning actor, prolific tweeter and all-round hero Tom Hanks is set to release his debut book this fall, Uncommon Type; a love letter to his fascination with old vintage typewriters. Written over the course of two years, this anthology of 17 stories all center around his unusual hobby, including the a refugee arriving in New York after civil war destroys his family and country; a man who always bowls a perfect game, and an eccentric billionaire. This official launch will see Hanks talk live on stage about his love of the written word, and what inspired him to take up the pen himself.
With his most famous film roles being in the movies Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Toy Story 1,2,3 The Da Vinci Code, Big, Splash, Turner and Hooch (the first two of which he won Academy Awards for), Hanks is the third-biggest grossing actor in America, beloved across the world for his temerity and ability to switch between comedy and serious drama. In 2014, he even ventured into the world of app-building; his type facscmile app for iPhone, Hanx Writer, allowed users to use their smartphones as an actual typewriter, fast becoming the top-selling app on iTunes.
Performance date: 24 October 2017
