Your link led to other interesting info about Thomas Gladysz and his revival of the banned book " Diary of a Lost Girl"
"On November 14th (Louise Brooks' birthday), I will speak about my new “Louise Brooks edition” of The Diary of a Lost Girl in the Koret Auditorium of the San Francisco Public Library. Start time is 1 pm. My short talk (with a slide show) will be followed by a screening of the 1929 film. This event is free and open to the public. A booksigning will follow."
Thanks Amy, the plot thickens;)
