    Harvardwood Heads To... Free Public Screening + Discussion: Award-winning Documentary "Is Anybody Listening?"

    Friday, March 23, 2018 at 06:30 PM

    A woman's journey to -- and across -- the soul-destroying chasm between veterans and others. A film about the power of love and connection.

    If you're not a veteran and think this film does not concern you, well, that's the point. Veterans, their loved ones, and nonveterans love the film. Veterans say "THIS is what I want my loved ones -- and the nation -- to know!" Nonveterans say the film humanizes veterans for them. The film has appealed to people across all political lines.

    Harvardwood Heads To... JUST THE FUNNY PARTS by Nell Scovell AB '82 in conversation with Alexandra Petri AB '10

    Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 05:00 PM
    Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, DC

    With more than thirty years of experience as a writer, producer, and director, Nell Scovell AB '82 knows how the entertainment industry works. She came to Hollywood as a bookish New Englander and worked her way up from a low-level writer for Newhart to a major contributor to shows including The Simpsons, Late Night with David Letterman, Murphy Brown, and NCIS and on to creator of the series Sabrina the Teenage Witch. While her roles have mainly been behind the scenes, Scovell has had several moments in the limelight. In 2009, she spoke out about gender bias on late-night TV writing staffs, and later she collaborated with Sheryl Sandberg on Lean In. In both cases Scovell helped spark a debate about diversity in a male-dominated work environment that her candid, wise, and very funny memoir continues. 

    Scovell will be in conversation with Alexandra Petri AB '10Washington Post columnist.

    This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis. Click here for more information.
