Professional Writing program sponsors “The Words” movie night

The Penn State Berks Professional Writing program will sponsor a night at the movies to see "The Words" on Monday, September 17, 2012, at 4:40 p.m. at the RC Reading Movies 11 IMAX Theatre. This event is open to Professional Writing faculty and students, as well as those considering a major or minor in the program. Participants will meet in the Franco Building lobby by 4 p.m., and will return to campus at approximately 6:30 p.m. The Professional Writing program will finance the movie tickets.

“The Words” is written and directed by Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal. The plot centers on Rory Jansen, a struggling writer who aspires to be the next great literary voice. When he discovers a lost manuscript in a weathered briefcase, he realizes that he has acquired something extraordinary, he wishes he had created. Rory decides to pass the work off as his own and finally receives the recognition he has desperately wanted. Yet he soon learns that living with his choice will not be easy, as he faces a moral dilemma that will force him to reflect on the man he has become. It stars Bradley Cooper, Olivia Wilde, Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Irons, Ben Barnes, and Dennis Quaid. 

Those who would like to attend this event should contact Dr. Christian Weisser (CRW17@psu.edu), Associate Professor of English and Program Coordinator for Professional Writing.
