a documentary film by Julie Moggan, part of the “Now at the Library” Documentary Film Series
Sunday, February 17, 2 pm
Jackson Screening Room, lower level, Wyndham Robertson Library
“Julie Moggan’s ‘Guilty Pleasures’ takes an amusing and touching look at this global phenomenon. Ironies abound in the contrasts between the everyday lives of the books’ readers and the fantasy worlds that offer them escape. ‘Guilty Pleasures’ portrays five romance devotees who must, ultimately, find their dreams in the real world.”
The film will be introduced by S. J. Creek, assistant professor of sociology.
This event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov). Reception to follow.
