Good News, Bad News from the Calvin Festival of Faith & Writing

Good news:

I had an extraordinary time at Calvin’s Festival of Faith and Writing. So many new friends, so many books signed, so many inspiring encounters and lectures and conversations! My friend Stephen Lamb has been blogging about his experiences there.

Bad news:

My laptop blew up. Yes. With smoke and everything.

So, I’ll be back with more details and regular blogging soon, but it’ll be slow for a while here….

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.

    Just curious… What kind of laptop was it? Sorry to hear about it just the same.

    oh no! Hopefully it was sitting somewhere besides your lap when it decided to go.

    Rebelling against too much work at Calvin, perhaps? ;-)

    Great presentations, btw. Several of my classmates from Malone were at Friday’s session and I think most everyone from Malone, profs included, were at Saturday’s session. All had great things to say. :-)

    Four of us (that I know about) bought books (two after I said yes, get the book!) and all of us got them signed.

    Good luck with the laptop!

    Your presentation at Calvin was great! And it was fun to hear the miracle of Auralia’s Colors’s publication in person. Good luck with the laptop. I keep expecting mine to explode any moment now.
