PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Actor Jesse Eisenberg was onstage at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville with JBFC board President Janet Maslin, following a screening of "The Double."

Eisenberg talked with the audience about his new book, "Bream Gives Me Hiccups," and did a book signing to culminate the evening.

"Bream Gives Me Hiccups: And Other Stories" is the fiction debut of the Academy Award-nominated actor. Taking its title from a group of stories that begin the book, "Bream Gives Me Hiccups" moves from contemporary Los Angeles to the dorm rooms of an American college to ancient Pompeii, throwing the reader into a universe of social misfits, reimagined scenes from history and ridiculous overreactions.
