Meet n Greet Author Robin Holabird

 



Author, film expert, and world traveler Robin Holabird puts a local spin on Sierra Foothills movie and travel in a reading from her newest book Dec. 4 at 4p.m. at Ironstone Vineyards in Murphy’s, California.  Robin’s travel topics from her book Around the World in 80 Movies include frogs and wine, important factors in Calaveras County.

Robin writes regularly about films and their locations, with her weekly program airing on Reno’s NPR affiliate KUNR at 88.7 FM every Friday. She also provides film commentary for Rotten Tomatoes and KOH 780 AM. Her book Around the World in 80 Movies (Ice Cube Press 2019), shows the link between films and travel destinations. As editor of the magazine, Locations and her longtime experience as a film commissioner for the state of Nevada, she traveled the world extensively and continues that practice today with her husband Fred.

Robin has worked with Clint Eastwood, Taylor Hackford, PT Anderson and other directors on such projects as Love Ranch, Sister Act, and CSI. She honed writing skills with a degree in Journalism from Humboldt State University and reporting stints at KOLO, the Sparks Tribune, and other media outlets. She earned certification and a Master’s in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Nevada-Reno.







Holabird’s first book, Elvis, Marilyn and the Space Aliens, (University of Nevada Press 2017) explores how movies and television programs affect Nevada’s public image.




Robin is a founding member of the original Reno Film Festival and helps with Reno’s Cordillera Film Festival, Sci-On Film Festival, and Ely Film Festival. She is a board member of the Northern Nevada Wine Association and coordinator of the Reno’s longstanding NNW (No-Name Wine group). An outdoor enthusiast who loves photographing locations throughout the world, Robin is a regular hiker and runner who finished the Boston Marathon six times.

Both of Robin’s books are available at Ironstone.
