Story and Star Wars
So I glad I voted for this seminar. I loved this first episode. So excited to be studying this story that I have loved with my children and grandchildren. Thanks, Alastair! It was great. I want more.
A wonderful discussion
Alastair leads such wonderful discussions that somehow help you love what love even more through deeper understanding of story.

This is a most for Star Wars fans and story nerds alike.
