An Exciting Start to Winter With the Writers, 2011

On January 19, 2011 as part of “Winter With the Writers,” a Festival of the Literary Arts presented by Rollins College, and in conjunction with the Enzian Theater, a one-time screening of NOSFERATU will be featured, followed by a Q&A session with Jim Shepard, author and film critic. A reception for WWW friends and patrons and members of the Enzian Theater precedes the showing.


 

Ranked by Empire magazine as one of the “100 Best Films of World Cinema,” NOSFERATU, directed by the legendary F.W. Murnau, is considered the first important film of the vampire genre.  Mostly shot on location, this silent German Expressionist classic features spectral atmosphere and is perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned.

 

Mr. Shepard, who is the first WWW writer of the 2011 festival season, will conduct a master class at 4 p. m. and read from new work at 8 p. m., Thursday, January 20 in Bush Auditorium, on the Rollins College campus. Both events are free and open to the public.

 

Jim Shepard is the author of six novels and five collections of short fiction. His stories have appeared in Harper’s, McSweeney’s, The Paris Review, The Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, DoubleTake, The New Yorker, Granta, Zoetrope: All-Story, and Playboy

 

January 26 and 27, the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Stephen Dunn will be on campus.  Watch for details of his visit. Visit the WWW website or phone Karen Slater for more information: kslater@rollins.edu
