An Evening with Brian Jay Jones

Did you know that the first realistic computer generated imagery (CGI) animal to appear in a Hollywood film was in Jim Henson's cult favorite fantasy musical Labyrinth? These and more fascinating facts about Jim Henson's life and works were revealed when author Brian Jay Jones came to Gaithersburg Library to talk about his national bestseller Jim Henson: A Biography. Presented by the Gaithersburg Book Festival, the evening included a multimedia presentation with rare photos of Jim Henson's personal and creative life.
