Holiday TV Movies: A Discussion with Screenwriter Julie Sherman Wolfe (in person)

Monday, December 11 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Holiday TV Movies: A Discussion with Screenwriter Julie Sherman Wolfe  

Grab a cup of hot cocoa and join Julie Sherman Wolfe, a Hallmark screenwriter, and Amy Weiss, Director of the Greenberg Center at the University of Hartford, for a conversation on holiday TV movies. They’ll discuss why these movies are so popular, what it’s like to see a story come to life on TV, and why Connecticut makes for a great fictional holiday setting.

Julie Sherman Wolfe has been writing for television and film for over 25 years. Since penning her first Hallmark movie in 2015 (Hello, It’s Me), she has written 24 more for the network, including One Royal Holiday, The Birthday Wish, and in 2022: A Holiday Spectacular featuring The Radio City Rockettes, and Hanukkah on Rye. She has two “fall-themed” movies airing in 2023, and plans to write another Hanukkah movie for 2024. Before finding her home at Hallmark, Julie also wrote for the YA audience (including the WGA Award-winning Avalon High), animation (Baby Blues), primetime sitcoms (3rd Rock from the SunPhil of the Future), independent features, and numerous half-hour pilots. In 2017, Julie and her family fulfilled a lifelong dream to relocate from Los Angeles to New England. They are now living their own “Real Life Hallmark Movie” in a small town in Connecticut, where a “traffic jam” is a couple of cars stopping to let a bear cross the street.

This event will be held at the Wilde Auditorium, University of Hartford. 

Advance registration is preferred. Please email the Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies at mgcjs@hartford.edu

Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Avon Library and the Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies.
