Virtual - Q&A with Author Sean O'Connell: "Bruce Willis: Celebrating the Cinematic Legacy of an Unbreakable Hollywood Icon"

Virtual - Q&A with Author Sean O'Connell: "Bruce Willis: Celebrating the Cinematic Legacy of an Unbreakable Hollywood Icon"

On a nondescript Wednesday morning in the waning days of March 2023, one of the biggest movie stars on the planet called it quits. No press conference had been organized, the Hollywood trades received no advance notice, and there was a conspicuous lack of the fanfare that usually accompanies such bombshell announcements. Instead, the news that Bruce Willis was retiring from acting came in a simple statement on his ex-wife Demi Moore’s Instagram page—along with the tragic news that Willis was suffering from aphasia, a cognitive disorder that subsequently worsened to become frontotemporal dementia. Join us as we discuss Bruce's life, work, and future with author Sean O'Connell. We will also be discussing the essential question - is "Die Hard" a Christmas movie or not? Join us to weigh in!
