Barry Sonnenfeld will be the keynote speaker for opening night of the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival on Sunday, November 1. Sonnenfeld will speak about his new book Call Your Mother: Memoirs of a Neurotic Filmmaker. His sometimes outrageous and hilarious memoir traces his idiosyncratic upbringing in New York City, his break into film as a cinematographer with the Coen brothers, and his unexpected career as the director behind such huge film franchises as The Addams Family and Men in Black, Get Shorty, Pushing Daisies and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
