In Episode 20 of Listening At The Fire, host Virginia Anzengruber shares an edited panel discussion from the first of our Summer Screen Club events focusing on Shrill - the hilarious and poignant series on Hulu starring Aidy Bryant - based on the novel "Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman" by Lindy West.
One night each month this Summer, Fountain Street Church will host a panel discussion featuring regional non-profit organizations, and film & television experts to dissect, analyze, and discuss some of today’s most thought-provoking TV shows. All Summer Screen Club events are free and open to the public. You watch the shows at your own pace, on your own schedule. Once a month we will meet to talk about them. It’s like a book club that you can binge watch.
The Summer Screen Club is presented as part of Fountain Street Church's new education initiative: The Learning Commons. To find out more about The Learning Commons, please visit: hhttps://www.facebook.com/TheLearningCommonsAtFSC.
Panelists for this event include Sarah Vesely, Director of the Wealthy Theatre; and Lydia VanHoven-Cook, Co-Founder of The Grand Rapids Feminist Film Festival and Board Member of Better Body Image Conference (our non-profit sponsor for this event).
Special thanks to our media sponsor for this series: Grand Rapids Community Media Center, who are committed to broadening media literacy in West Michigan and beyond. To find out more about all of these organizations, please check out the links below!
