What Cookie Monster, the Abominable Snowman, Frankenstein, Gollum, Darth Vader, and Daniel Plainview Have in Common

What do Cookie Monster, the Abominable Snowman, Frankenstein, Gollum, Darth Vader, and Daniel Plainview have in common?

I’ll be talking about how each of them have fascinated and impressed me at different points in my life, and how they influenced the writing of Cyndere’s Midnight

THURSDAY NIGHT at 7 p.m., at Third Place Books.

I’ll also read from Cyndere’s Midnight and answer your questions. Copies of Cyndere’s Midnight, Auralia’s Colors, and Through a Screen Darkly will be available, and I’ll scribble on them if you like.

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.
