Raymond Benson: A Morning With James Bond, the Black Stiletto and Raymond Benson

Internationally known author Raymond Benson will deliver multimedia presentations on the history of the James Bond phenomenon, including the life of creator Ian Fleming and how 007 has become a worldwide icon; and Raymond's eclectic career in the arts—as a theatre director, music composer, game designer, film historian and instructor, and thriller author.

Raymond Benson is the author of 28 published books. He is most well known for being the fourth author—and first American—to write official James Bond novels. His latest works are entries in the Black Stiletto series. With Daily Herald film critic Dann Gire, he presents the hugely popular Dann & Raymond's Movie Club at the Schaumburg and Arlington Heights libraries. Reach Raymond at www.raymondbenson.com.

    His career is staggering but has little to do with my life. Interesting but not informative
