You know him as an actor, but this talk is about Tom Hanks, the writer.
Tom Hanks joins us in conversation about his first collection of fiction. Known for his honesty and sensitivity as an actor, Tom Hanks brings these characteris- tics to his first collection of stories: Uncommon Type, a New York Times best- seller. Surprising, intelligent, heartwarming and frequently hilarious, the stories explore the human condition in all its foibles, and are each
connected by the appearance of a typewriter. This event introduces another artistic dimension
to the actor, screenwriter, director, and producer as he reflects candidly on the writing and the real world it reflects.
