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.

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.

    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.
