Quentin Tarantino's 1997 film Jackie Brown — adapted from Leonard's novel Rum Punch — shows at 7 p.m. followed by a discussion with Leonard, author of such classics as Get Shorty, Out of Sight, 3:10 to Yuma (just to cite some titles that have been turned into films).
The internationally acclaimed author grew up in Detroit and has remained in metro Detroit — currently in Oakland County — while his career has flourished.
