It’s happening again: Join me for a week of movies and discussion.

What happened when the lights went out in Room 105?

I’ve written about it here, in today’s Good Letters post at

I was in a classroom at St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, watching six of my favorite movies with eighteen other people. Then we discussed them for hours. It was a fantastic time. I’m still smiling over it.

Get ready: We’re going to do it again next summer. Different movies, intense discussion… and it all happens in the middle of my favorite arts conference, in one of my favorite cities in the world. Stay tuned.
