We’ve added two more videos from recent author events at the Jean Cocteau to the JCC website:
CONNIE WILLIS, interviewed by Melinda M. Snodgrass
JOHN NICHOLS, interviewed by Lorene Mills
If you weren’t able to be with us in person, you can check them out at
Connie and I have known each other for decades, of course, and she’s always a delight. John Nichols, however, I’ve only met once or twice previously, and the last time was probably twenty years ago at an event up in Colorado organized by Ed Bryant. Nichols is a fascinating man, however, and he had a lot to say. Even if you don’t know his work, you should find him interesting.
The video of my own talk with John Scalzi is not ready yet, but should be up soon.
Autographed books by Connie Willis, Melinda Snodgrass, John Nichols, John Scalzi, and myself are all available from the JCC website, of course. Along with lots more from other authors.
A recent comment from a “fan” said, in rather strong words, that he was not interested in the Jean Cocteau or anything that went on there. Fair enough. No one said you had to be. Maybe you should skip the posts with the JCC icon on top.
Thing is, though, that Santa Fe cares about the Jean Cocteau… I’ve had many people tell me that they love our little theatre… and more to the point, I care as well. The Jean Cocteau doesn’t bring me big wheelbarrows of money. Far from it. If we ever manage to get it into the black, I may die of shock. It is, however, a source of joy… for our patrons, for our city, and certainly for myself. And in the end, we all need some joy in our lives.
