SPECIAL EVENTS SURROUNDING IT
August 15th at 6:00 PM, a special presentation titled "It's a Strange Thing, Mr. King" will be presented at Idea+Works by Mary E. Findley, PhD Associate Professor at Vermont Technical College. In many ways, watching the Netflix hit Stranger Things is like watching a "Best of Stephen King" montage that just happens to have a stellar storyline and an even more amazing cast. Stephen King himself has commented on both his love of the show and on his influence within it. This presentation will examine the many ways Stranger Things pays homage to the King of Horror and will explore where it tends to part ways. This presentation welcomes dialogue and audience participation. What do you love about Stephen King? What do you love about Stranger Things? How do you see these two worlds intersecting?
Dr. Findley will also present a short talk before the movie IT, starting at 6:30 PM.
Directly following the screening of IT, please join Dr. Findley for a trivia night at The Phoenix Brewery in downtown Mansfield.
