    Harvardwood Heads To... SOLVER Movie Premiere - Los Angeles

    Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 07:30 PM · $20.00 USD
    Landmark Regent in Westwood in Los Angeles, CA

    Please join us at the Landmark Regent in Westwood (1045 Broxton Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90024) for the LA Premier of the Indy film Solver!

    Solver is a classic treasure hunt with the modern twist of an escape room. Written and produced by Jack Kelley and John Ruby, the film follows Luke Williams (played by Ruby) as he arrives at his late grandfather's cabin in Upstate New York and discovers a mysterious puzzle leading to a dangerous secret. And if that's not enough, the film marks HLS alum Ohia Amadi's (uncredited) feature film debut as Officer #2. :-)

    Hang around later for a Q&A with the cast and crew and afterparty at Barney's Beanery right next to the theater (1037 Broxton Ave.).

    Harvardwood Heads To... HELLBENT Launch Party with Gregg Hurwitz

    Tuesday, January 30, 2018 at 07:00 PM
    Diesel Bookstore in Santa Monica, CA

    Attend the launch party of HELLBENT, available Jan. 30th, from best-selling author Gregg Hurwitz AB '95.

    Taken from a group home at age twelve, Evan Smoak was raised and trained as an off-the-books government assassin: Orphan X. After he broke with the Orphan Program, Evan disappeared and reinvented himself as the Nowhere Man, a man spoken about only in whispers and dedicated to helping the truly desperate.

    But this time, the voice on the other end is Jack Johns, the man who raised and trained him, the only father Evan has ever known. Secret government forces are busy trying to scrub the remaining assets and traces of the Orphan Program and they have finally tracked down Jack. With little time remaining, Jack gives Evan his last assignment: find and protect his last protégé and recruit for the program.

    But Evan isn’t the only one after this last Orphan—the new head of the Orphan Program, Van Sciver, is mustering all the assets at his disposal to take out both Evan (Orphan X) and the target he is trying to protect.

    Gregg Hurwitz is the New York Times bestselling author of 19 novels, including HELLBENT (2018). His novels have been shortlisted for numerous literary awards, graced top ten lists, and have been published in 30 languages.

    He is also a New York Times Bestselling comic book writer, having penned stories for Marvel (Wolverine, Punisher) and DC (Batman, Penguin). Additionally, he’s written screenplays for or sold spec scripts to many of the major studios (including THE BOOK OF HENRY), and written, developed, and produced television  for various networks.  Gregg resides in Los Angeles.
