The Secrets of Superman and Batman
Superheroes have secrets beyond secret identities. Raue Center For The Arts is thrilled to welcome author Marc Tyler Nobleman for a presentation of “The Secrets of Superman and
Batman” at 8 p.m. on June 14, 2018.
“We at Raue Center are obsessed with Superman and Batman. Some of our people have worked on the films. So, when Terry Jacobsen, a committee member, contacted me from District 47 schools and pitched the idea of bringing Marc to Raue, I thought it was a no-brainer,” says Raue Center Executive Director, Richard Kuranda. “I mean, who doesn’t like Superman and Batman? We are already looking forward to “One-Man Dark Knight” on June 15, and it seemed like a natural fit. I can’t wait to learn more!”
A self-described “pop culture archaeologist,” Nobleman is the author of “Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman” and “Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman.” Join the author as he reveals the mysteries he solved while investigating the often-heartbreaking backstories of the creators of two of the world’s biggest icons.
Startling twists throughout “The Secrets of Superman and Batman” will keep even those who couldn’t care less about superheroes on the edge of their seats. One of his discoveries led to a historic change that inspired the unprecedented Hulu documentary “Batman & Bill” and a TED Talk. But don’t look it up in advance! Audiences will want to hear it live…
Nobleman has been invited to share this detective story across America and in countries from Tanzania to Thailand. His other titles include “Brave Like My Brother,” “Thirty Minutes over Oregon: A Japanese Pilot’s World War II Story,” “Fairy Spell: How Two Girls Convinced the World that Fairies Are Real” and “The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra.”
Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets may be purchased online at rauecenter.org or via the Box Office at 815.356.9212 or 26 N. Williams Street in downtown Crystal Lake.
