Rob Stone book launch at Manchester Cornerhouse

Rob Stone and Lisa Shaw

On Friday 17 May 2013 the Cornerhouse Arts Centre in Manchester was the venue for a launch party packed with people and books. The event centred around the publication by Manchester University Press of a new book entitled Screening Songs in Hispanic and Lusophone Cinema co-edited by Professor Rob Stone of B-Film and Dr Lisa Shaw of the University of Liverpool (pictured above).

The event was also the occasion of the launch of A Companion to Luis Buñuel, a major new anthology again co-edited by Professor Rob Stone, this time with Dr Julián Daniel Gutiérrez Albilla of the University of Southern California, and published by Wiley-Blackwell. Also present was Professor Stone’s new monograph Walk, Don't Run: The Cinema of Richard Linklater, published by Wallflower, an imprint of Columbia University Press.
