What Hosts Are Saying
"Of the many events we've hosted in our 18 plus years in business, our delightful evening with author and filmmaker Jared Brock will go down as one of the most enjoyable for our staff and patrons. I strongly and without reservation recommend that all my bookstore peers host similar events."
“Josiah Henson is an essential figure within the American narrative and the struggle for freedom. Jared Brock’s film does an outstanding job of illuminating Josiah’s significance to our history and culture. In addition, Jared effectively engages the audience with his post-film discussions.”
“Jared Brock is a gifted storyteller who did a great job introducing his film - and kept everyone glued to their seats during the discussion afterward.”
“The screening of Josiah at our college opened the door for a powerful discussion on human rights, and with Jared's guidance and insight after the film students were able to connect and engage in that important conversation. I have rarely seen students so moved by a speaker and film. Jared's passion, compassion, and ability to gently and effectively challenge students with new ideas and ways of thinking made for a student learning experience that continues to spark conversation and action on our campus many months later."
“It was a treat to have author and filmmaker Jared Brock here to present his outstanding film about Josiah Henson. In his introduction—and during the discussion and book signing following the film—Jared’s infectious dedication to illuminating the work and life of this key historical figure shone through his every word, leaving the audience fully engaged and inspired to learn more.”
