See “Read Me” at the Orlando Film Festival

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on October 21, 2016



I saw “Read Me” at the Orlando Film Festival, and I can’t stop thinking about it. I laughed and cried and walked out feeling uplifted and humming the original score; what more can you ask from a feature film?  The really great news is that it’s playing again on Saturday, October 22nd at noon in Theater 10 at the Cobb Plaza Cinema Cafe, 155 South Orange Avenue, Orlando.  Written and directed by Fred Zara, and produced by Aviva Christie, “Read Me” tells the story of Clark, who can’t read words, but can read people. His special gift touches everyone he becomes involved with, and changes lives for the better. See this movie, and bring a friend.

Here’s the trailer. Enjoy!

Haunting the Kerouac House

Regular readers of this blog know that I was the 19th writer in residence at the Jack Kerouac House, and most of our friends know that I also met my husband Brad Kuhn at a party there; heck, we were married on its front porch.  But a lot of you haven’t heard the story of how another Kerouac House writer, Sion Dayson, and I met when I was selling copies of my novel, Sewing Holes at an authors fair at Bookmark It, or that within 5 minutes of our first hello, Sion and I had arranged a road trip (what else would two Kerouac devotees do?) from Orlando to New Orleans to start the day her residency ended, to visit our mutual friends from Paris. Sion’s boyfriend, French filmmaker Frederic Monpierre, who had just finished shooting raw footage of her at the K-house, gamely climbed into the backseat of Ruby, our trusty red Lexus, and with Brad acting as chauffeur, we were on the road.

Now we’ve come full circle, as Monpierre’s 15 minute documentary, Haunting the Kerouac House, starring Dayson, makes its Orlando debut at the Orlando Film Festival on Friday, October 21st at 7 p.m. in Theater 9.  Join us!  Here’s the teaser.

Show, Tell, Write

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on October 14, 2016


Remember when you were in first grade, and you brought a treasure to school to share in show and tell? That was loads of fun, so why should such a time be available only for kids?

Welcome to show and tell for big people, with a twist. Join the fun this Tuesday, October 18th for Show, Tell, Write presented by Patricia Charpentier in conjunction with Bookmark It, Orlando’s independent bookstore, and Infusion Tea, College Park’s award-winning tea and vegetarian cafe.

Come early and grab a tasty meal and cup of tea before the fun begins at 6:30 p.m. Bring in a memento or item from your past or present each month (or photos, if the objects are too large) that is meaningful and holds many memories. Then, take a few minutes to share the item with the group and tell its story and significance to you.

Then, after being given a bit of instruction, we’ll write for a few minutes about the object you brought in or some other story you’d like to tell. You’ll learn how to write vivid descriptions, convey sentiment, and detail the item’s history and importance. No previous writing experience is required for this fun, hands-on event.

Don’t want to talk about your treasure? No problem. Bring it with you anyway; come, listen, write, and be a part of the group.  Before you head home around 8:00 p.m., check out Bookmark It’s great selection of books on site in Infusion Tea, 1600 Edgewater Drive, Orlando, FL 32804.

I hope you’ll come and be a part of Show, Tell, Write.
