SAINT AUGUSTINE – Flagler College co-authors Dr. Jim Wilson and Professor Emeritus Constantine Santas will share and discuss their newest book, “The Essential Films of Ingrid Bergman,” March 11 at 5:30 p.m. in the Markland House at 102 Markland Place. The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and both authors will provide opportunities for signing.
Wilson is the chair of the English department and has taught at Flagler College since 1992. He was previously the executive director of the Florida Heritage Book Festival. Wilson is the co-author of two books: “The Encyclopedia of Epic Films” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014) and “The Essential Films of Ingrid Bergman” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018).
Santas started the film studies program at Flagler College. Other books he’s written or co-written include “The Encyclopedia of Epic Films” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014), “The Epic Films of David Lean” (Scarecrow Press, 2011) and “The Essential Humphrey Bogart” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2016).
Wilson said he took on the “interesting challenge of writing about the life and works of Bergman…because it was the opportunity to work with Constantine again.”
Attendees to the event can expect to see multimedia presented to highlight parts of the book, discussion with the authors as well as the opportunity to ask questions.
