The Bookshelf Conversation: Heather Quinlan

Can you believe it’s been almost 30 years since the NY Mets won their last championship? That’s a generation. Not that I’m complaining. Could be worse (see, Chicago Cubs).

But anniversaries are great for books and movies, so Heather Quinlan is taking up the challenge for ’86 Mets: The Movie.

As you can tell from the trailer, she’s already lined up some high-profile names: Doc and Darryl, Mookie, and Rudy (Giuliani. Now that‘s a coup, given how much of a Yankee fan he is).

Needless to say, and to paraphrase Ringo Starr, a project like this don’t come easy. Quinlan has turned to Kickstarter as a means of raising $50,000. As she said in our conversation, if every Mets fan gave a dollar…

Quinlan has been down this road before. She is a veteran filmmaker, having already released the award-winning If These Knishes Could Talk, a documentary about New York accents, among other movies. And this on top of her day job!
