Screening | The Hours

Monday, February 19, 2018 - 7:30pm

Join us in JMHH F95 for a screening of the Academy Award–winning film The Hours, followed by a conversation over Skype with author Michael Cunningham. Admission is free and popcorn will be served!

Directed by Stephen Daldry and based upon Michael Cunningham's Pulitzer Prize–winning novel, The Hours is the story of three women searching for more potent, meaningful lives. Each is alive at a different time and place, all are linked by their yearnings and their fears. Their stories intertwine, and finally come together in a surprising, transcendent moment of shared recognition.

Michael Cunningham is the author of seven novels including The Hours, which earned him a Pulitzer Prize. Other accolades include the PEN/Faulkner Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and a Whiting Writers' Award. He currently teaches creative writing at Yale University.
