Brian Jay Jones’ “Jim Henson” signing

East Coast author Brian Jay Jones, who once called Albuquerque and UNM home, comes to the Duke City to celebrate the release of his authorized biography on Muppet creator Jim Henson. As part of that visit, he will be at Page One Bookstore October 26 to talk about and sign Jim Henson: The Biography!

Jones was allowed to do research in the Muppet archives and talked to many of Henson’s friends and colleagues. This extraordinary biography—written with the generous cooperation of the Henson family—covers the full arc of Henson’s all-too-brief life: from his childhood in Leland, Mississippi, through the years of burgeoning fame in America, to the decade of international celebrity that preceded his untimely death at age 53.

Come join Jones 2:30 pm Saturday, October 26, at Page One Bookstore, 11018 Montgomery Blvd NE (southwest corner of Montgomery & Juan Tabo).

“I’m a rabid Jim Henson fan—his brilliant ideas spawned shows that entertained and educated millions, myself included. Jim Henson vibrantly delves into the magnificent man and his Muppet methods. It’s an absolute must read!”—Neil Patrick Harris

“I worked with Jim for more than 30 years. He was one of my closest friends. And yet I found out things about him in Jim Henson that were new to me. Brian Jay Jones has captured the layers of Jim’s genius and humanity, as well as the flaws that made Jim, like all of us, so delightfully imperfect. Jim needed this book to be written. I thank Brian for giving Jim life again. This book has captured the spirit of Jim Henson.”—Frank Oz
