Marshall Terrill Book Signing Event

Update: Great news! Barbara Minty McQueen will join Marshall Terrill at the Beech Grove Book Signing Event.

This will be Barbara’s first-ever visit to the city of McQueen’s birth, as it will also be for Marshall.  The folks at the Beech Grove Library are thrilled and are looking forward to showing Barbara the memorabilia about Wanted Dead or Alive in our Steve McQueen Birthplace Collection, since (as she noted in her book The Last Mile) she first watched McQueen on this show as a child.

Steve McQueen: The Life & Legend of a Hollywood Icon by Marshall TerrillBEECH GROVE, IND. (Oct. 7, 2010) – Steve McQueen’s preeminent biographer is coming to Beech Grove to discuss the life, death and resurrection of the superstar almost 30 years after his passing.

Biographer Marshall Terrill will make a special visit to the Beech Grove Public Library, 1102 Main Street, Beech Grove, on Sunday, Oct. 31. His 2 p.m. appearance will include a power point presentation, question and answer session and the signing of his new book, Steve McQueen: The Life and Legend of a Hollywood Icon.  Beech Grove native and McQueen enthusiast, Will Smither, will also appear as a guest speaker.

“I’ve been to numerous places throughout the United States and Mexico to conduct research on the life of Steve McQueen, but the one place I seemed to keep missing was Beech Grove, Indiana, the place where it all started,” Terrill said.  “I’m excited to see the hospital where McQueen was born and the home where he was raised.”

Terrill credits Smither with finding key research on McQueen’s birth and early life in Beech Grove. A non-certified birth certificate shows that McQueen was born in Marion County but the document does not provide the name of the hospital where he was born.  Both men believe McQueen was born at St. Francis Hospital at 1600 Albany St. The hospital was built in 1914 and was a five-minute drive from the home of Victor and Lillian Crawford, McQueen’s maternal grandparents, who owned a home in the Little Flower district.  They raised their grandson until the age of three, and moved to Slater, Missouri, as a result of the Great Depression.

In December 1993, Terrill launched his literary career with Steve McQueen: Portrait of an American Rebel, an exhaustively researched biography that became an instant best-seller, has gone into four printings and was optioned as a feature film in 2009.  His new book, Steve McQueen: The Life and Legacy of a Hollywood Icon is a 624-page biography which will be released in November, 2010 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of McQueen’s death.
