Author, Filmmaker to Present The 10 Letters Project on Art of Friendship

WYDaily.com is your source for free news and information in Williamsburg, James City & York Counties.

10 Letters ProjectWhat started as communication between two creative minds at turning points in their lives will become a documentary on the art of friendship, and a local audience can get a sneak peek.

Writer and illustrator Tim Manley and filmmaker Jen Lee will discuss The 10 Letters Project at Artfully Yours, a Richmond Road consignment store and art space, at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Manley is the author of “Alice in Tumblr-land: And Other Fairy Tales for a New Generation,” which chronicles storybook characters finding their way in modern America, and Lee produced and directed “Indie Kindred,” a documentary that follows 10 artists building collaboration.

The 10 Letters Project tells the story of friendship between the pair through their correspondence at a time of career success while they pushed personal and professional boundaries.

At Artfully Yours, they will share a story of creativity and connection, showing a short film about the effort — The 10 Letters Project is set to be released in 2015 — and answering questions. Guests can ask questions and snack on light hors d’oeuvres.

Tickets are $25 each and must be purchased in advance. They can be purchased through the Artfully Yours website.

Call the store at 253-6932.
