About this event

Filmmaker and author Rodrigo Garcia joins book club readers July 29 to discuss “A Farewell to Gabo and Mercedes” with Times editor Steve Padilla.

Garcia was born in Colombia, grew up in Mexico City and now lives in Los Angeles with his family. He studied at Harvard University before becoming a screenwriter and director. His work as writer and director include “Nine Lives,” “Albert Nobbs” and “Last Days in the Desert.” Garcia has directed for television series such as “Six Feet Under,” “The Sopranos” and the pilot of “Big Love,” for which he received an Emmy nomination. His latest film is “Four Good Days,” a drama with Mila Kunis and Glenn Close.
