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 ImageJournal.org.

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.

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.
