Ever dream of being a film critic? Meet one of the best in the world....

The Writing Department's annual Writers Series is bringing to campus one of the world's most renowned film critics: A.O. Scott.

Here's his bio from the Times site:

A. O. Scott joined The New York Times as a film critic in January 2000. Previously, he was a Sunday book reviewer for Newsday, and a frequent contributor to Slate, The New York Review of Books and many other publications.

A. O. Scott graduated with a B.A. degree in Literature (magna cum laude) from Harvard College in 1988 and was a grad-school dropout (from Johns Hopkins, in American Literature). He has also served on the editorial staffs of Lingua Franca and The New York Review of Books.

The details:

WHEN: Tuesday, February 3, 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: Klingenstein Lounge (over in the student center)
WHAT: Public lecture: Criticism as a Way of Life

This guy is reallly (really really) interesting. If you like movies, good writing, and dry wit, this is one you don't want to miss.

He was born on July 10, 1966 and lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two children.
