The Fever of ’57 premiere in Seattle May 30, 2007

I’m very pleased to announce that a new documentary, The Fever of ’57 (based on my father-in-law Paul‘s excellent book, Sputnik: The Shock of the Century) is premiering at the Seattle International Film Festival this weekend. Andrew and I are going up for the Friday premiere and staying for the encore on Sunday, too. If you’re around, please join us at one of the shows:

Friday, June 1 at the SIFF Cinema, 7:00 pm
Sunday, June 3 at the Neptune Theatre, 11:00 am

Paul will also be at both screenings, along with the director, David Hoffman, and there will be a Q&A afterwards. I also spotted this interview with David Hoffman, which Zee Grega posted on Metroblogging Seattle this morning.

On the crafty side of things, I’m also excited to check out the art show at McLeod and see my friends Maggie, Daphne and Karen. I love Seattle, and I haven’t been up there in forever! If there’s anything else I better check out, let me know…
