Ekphrasis: Allentown's Fellowship of Christians in the Arts
On Monday (January 5th), my edition of Charles Williams’ play The Chapel of the Thorn celebrated its official release with a nice little Book Launch Party at Ekphrasis. After enjoying fellowship and really great food (see below), we gathered to listen to a selection from Chapel, read by Betsy Gahman, Jeffrey Harvey, and Andrew Stirling MacDonald. You can watch the reading here: . I apologize for my zombie-like condition; I was (and still am) recovering from a horrific bout of ‘flu.
After the Chapel party, we proceeded to a regular Ekphrasis. It was short, but successful. Jeff and Alex shared fiction, Marian performed two drama audition pieces, and several members read an adaptation Besty made from Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. Is that it, folks? I can’t remember.
Do come out and join us next time!
Did one of the actors just say “But rather that man be bold to sin than ruled by terror”?
If I heard that right, that was strangely apt, in the light of this week’s events in Paris.
He did say that. Isn’t that wild?
I should have added that this theme seems to foreshadow the plot of “Many Dimensions.”
It does. And, as I (kind of) argued in my Mythmoot paper this weekend, it’s closely tied to all the novels, since they all center around a powerful object that is a spiritual catalyst.
