Congratulations to Madeline DeFrees…

…who I had the pleasure of meeting unexpectedly on Sunday at Elliott Bay Bookstore, while standing in line to have a book signed by another author.

DeFrees is the first recipient of the Denise Levertov Award from Image.

If you want to know why…

And, since I mentioned it, I met her after a reading by Martha Geis, celebrating the release of her wonderful new book of interviews with the night-walkers of Portland, Oregon: Up All Night

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
