Book Soup invites you to join Oscar-winning filmmaker Spike Lee (and a special VIP guest) for a conversation celebrating the launch of the filmmaker’s new book, SPIKE, to be published by Chronicle Chroma.

SPIKE is a lavish visual celebration of Spike’s life and career to date, features storytelling by Lee and includes hundreds of never-before-seen photographs by David Lee, Spike’s official on-set photographer. In opening his archives, Lee provided behind‐the‐scenes material from the making of his iconic films, documentaries, TV shows, and music videos.

RESERVE YOUR COPY NOW! ONLY BOOKS PREPURCHASED VIA BOOKSOUP’S EVENTBRITE TICKET WILL BE PERSONALLY SIGNED BY SPIKE LEE AND DISTRIBUTED AT THIS SPECIAL EVENT. REGRETFULLY, MR. LEE CANNOT SIGN OTHER ITEMS OR MEMORABILIA.

Spike Lee is a world-renowned, Academy Award-winning filmmaker, a cultural icon, and one of the most prominent voices on race and racism for more than three decades. His production company, 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, is based in Brooklyn, New York. Spike Lee produced more than 35 films, including his directorial debut She’s Gotta Have It, his seminal masterpiece Do the Right Thing, and more recently, the Oscar-winning BlacKkKlansman. He is a graduate of Morehouse College and New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he is a tenured Professor of Film and Artistic Director. Spike Lee’s provocative features, documentaries, commercials (Air Jordan), and music videos (Prince, Michael Jackson) have made an indelible mark in both cinematic history and in contemporary society.

“THIS BOOK REVISITS ALL DA WERK I’VE PUT IN TO BUILD MY BODY OF WORK. FILM IS A VISUAL ART FORM AND THAT SENSE OF MY STORYTELLING HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT OVERLOOKED. WHY NOW, AFTER ALL THESE YEARS? FOLKS BE FORGETTING.”

— Spike Lee
