Hot Topic!

I suppose this is worth noting.

I’ve been rather astonished as my post about The Golden Compass, which I wrote just a few days ago, has already become the most frequently opened and linked-to post in the eleven-year history of Looking Closer! More than posts about Star Wars, Spider-man, Harry Potter, or The Lord of the Rings!

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet departed the Patheos network in order to escape click-bait advertisements that were offending him and his readers. He will re-launch Looking Closer at lookingcloser.org soon. He is the author of The Auralia Thread, a four-volume fantasy series that begins with Auralia's Colors, and a memoir of "dangerous moviegoing" called Through a Screen Darkly. He teaches creative writing and film studies; speaks internationally about art and faith; served as Writer-in-Residence at Covenant College; and is employed by Seattle Pacific University as a project manager, copyeditor, and writer.

    Jeffrey, that is surprising, but it is an awfully good post. I passed it along to a fomer colleage of mine at a community college who teaches children’s literature and this is part of her email back to me. And I quote:

    “FASCINATING article you sent. Absolutely wonderful reading. I’m going to make it assigned reading next week in class….I loved his (Overstreet’s) reminder that parents and teachers need to be reading what the kids are reading, etc. (I beat my students over the head with this idea every semester…it will be nice to present this “back up” to them as proof that it’s not just my idea, and you can bet I’ll be forwarding it on to former students, too).”
