Seminar: When Harry Met Sally...
Cultural critic Aisha Harris leads this virtual seminar on Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron's Oscar-nominated rom-com classic.
How will this work?
When you register for this virtual education seminar, the program will be presented in three parts.
At least one week before the seminar, you'll receive an email with a link to watch a pre-taped lecture, to view before the film at your convenience. Please make sure to check your spam folder for this link before emailing our support team.
Then, you can go off and watch the film on your own. Please note, the Coolidge is not able to provide the film ourselves, but you can find out where to rent and/or stream it here.
Make sure you watch the film before the discussion, which will take place on Thursday, February 11 at 8pm EST over Zoom. Before the discussion, you can submit questions for the instructor here. You'll also have the opportunity to submit questions during the discussion!
