Watching Skies: Star Wars, Spielberg and Us
Join us for the LIVE Book Club on this morning, May 24th at 10:00 am chat about the book, or maybe just our favorite movies. You provide your own coffee and breakfast! Like many kids in an ‘80s world of VCRs, Reagan and Atari, Mark O’Connell wanted to be one of the mop-haired kids on the Star Wars toy commercials. Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman, and of course Star Wars weren’t just changing cinema—they were making lasting highways into our childhoods, toy boxes, and video stores like never before.
