WWU to Host a Screening of 'The General' Feb. 23 at The Pickford

As part of the WWU Children's Literature Conference, the Pickford Film Center will present a screening of the film The General, on Thursday, Feb. 23, starring Buster Keaton and with acclaimed graphic novel creator Matt Phelan, who will introduce the film and then also be available for a Q&A afterwards. 

The film itself screens at 6:30 p.m. at the Pickford Film Center (1318 Bay Street), but a pre-screening reception with champagne for the adults and sparkling cider for the kids, begins at 5:30 p.m.

Representatives from Village Books will also be in attendance and available to sell copies of Phelan’s novels, including the graphic novel that inspired this evening, "Bluffton: My Summer With Buster Keaton."
