Ever see a movie and think to yourself: “Man, I wish I had thought of that?”

It happens to even the best writers. And we’ll prove it: On May 23, the Writers Guild Foundation and Humanitas will host a selection of film and television writers who will discuss all those stories they wish they’d written. The panel will include:

Paris Qualles (The Tuskegee Airmen, A Raisin In The Sun teleplay)
David Seidler (The King’s Speech, the upcoming The Judge)
Moderator Robin Swicord (Little Women, Memoirs of a Geisha)

Reception will begin at 6:00 pm.
Interview will begin at 7:30 pm.
