MALIBU LIBRARY SPEAKER SERIES: HARLAN LEBO ON CITIZEN KANE

Harlan Lebo is the author of “Citizen Kane: A Filmmaker’s Journey,” a movie-lovers’ history of the trials, tribulations, and triumphs behind the making of “Citizen Kane.” He has also written books about “The Godfather” and “Casablanca” and served as a historical consultant to Paramount Pictures for the 50th anniversary of the release of “Citizen Kane.” Lebo writes about cultural history, science, the humanities, society, and the impact of digital technology.

In 2022, Angel City Press released “Citizen Kane: A Filmmaker’s Journey,” an updated and expanded work based on Lebo’s 2016 book tracing the creation of Orson Welles’s classic film. The book not only tells the story of the making of Hollywood’s greatest film, but also presents a compelling tale of censorship, individual rights, and creative freedom and recounts one of the most exciting chapters in Hollywood history. On Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. at the Malibu Library. RSVPs are required. To see more and upcoming city events visit, malibucity.org.
