Stone Reader

Stone Reader

Watched at FilmScene during the Iowa City Book Festival 2013.

A very intimate documentary about what a book means to one person and how we as readers interact with other readers and books that we love.

I'm not going to rate the film now. About 2/3 through something happened with the film and the production guys had to stop to try and fix it so the screening got behind - I had to leave for another panel right as the filmmaker got to the good part. That also meant that I missed any Q&A with Moskowitz (I had a slight problem with his search methodology - while meeting all these other readers was interesting, why didn't Moskowitz just cut to the chase and start his search for Mossman at the UI where Mossman had been in the IWP and started his only novel there?)

Will have to track this one down and finish it out.
