An Unforgettable Night at Third Place Books, Celebrating “Cyndere’s Midnight”

Here are a few moments from Thursday night’s crowded Cyndere’s Midnight release party. Over 100 people packed in for the reading. I read a chapter from the middle of the book called “The Watcher and the Ruined Farm,” talked about the profundity of “Beauty and the Beast,” and reminisced about my favorite monsters. It was an unforgettable evening, a wonderful time to chat with old friends and meet new friends. I was greatly encouraged by the enthusiasm.

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.

    Look at that balding head in the lower-left corner of the first pic! I tell you, you’ve got some incredibly good-looking fans. :-)

    I let my son read the book first, so I’m still waiting to get to it. The sacrifices one makes for one’s children. Sigh.

    Still, we enjoyed the reading and the signing. Congrats!
