Grand Rapids, Here I Come

I’m packing for an early-morning flight to Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the Calvin Festival of Faith and Writing, and I won’t be home until Sunday night.

So, I probably won’t have much opportunity to blog from there.

I’m looking forward to seeing some of you there. If you want to attend my presentations, check the schedule (link above).

Have a great weekend. Go see The Visitor this weekend!

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.

    Thanks for coming. My wife also gets choked up talking about Star Wars, and I must admit to fighting back tears when Gonzo starts to sing in The Muppet Movie (or is it just Muppet Movie?), so in you we’ve found a kindred spirit.

    Do you have the same reaction to One Little Star in Follow That Bird?

    Hope you have a great time in my old hometown! If we were still there I could run over and meet you in person…we only lived about 3 miles from Calvin. Myron, Linford and Karin, and their sister Grace and I all attended one year together and some of us made it for the subsequent 3 after that, I think. I miss being there…it’s a great time!
    Oh well…I’m here in Cincinnati, doling out soda crackers to my little one who has her very first bout of stomach flu. She’s doing much better. Poor baby.

    Hope it’s not too cold in GR for you…you never know about April in Michigan!
