Join us for the "Through a Screen Darkly" release party.

SATURDAY, FEB. 24, 7:30 PM

It’s time to celebrate! Come and share one of the most exciting evenings of my life… the Through a Screen Darkly book release party.

I’ll be reading an excerpt from the book and telling the rather bizarre story of how this all came about. Then, there’ll be a Q&A time, and a lot of conversation about great films. And I may even sign a copy or two, if I can manage to sit still.

Wine, h’ors d’ouvres, friends, family, and the generous and delightful John and Sharon Connell, who own the bookstore.

    Bono. Celine Dion. Matter. Anti-matter. I think something might explode….

    Hey, I’ve been there, at your recommendation. And the folks that I took with me bought something there and gave it to me for Christmas.

    While we were there I noticed the background music – Jeff Johnson. I was a big fan of his in the late 80′s. “Icons” is amazing. I inquired and the owners said they host events with him from time to time.

    Sorry to miss your party. It’s a long way from Ottawa. But my wife did preorder the book for me. It was a ridiculously good Christmas. I got Snow Angels too.
