Reminder to Watch American Experience on February 28

I wanted to remind you all to watch the documentary “The Amish” on American Experience (PBS) this coming Tuesday, February 28 from 8 to 10 pm, ET. It’s a good idea to check your local listings. You can watch a preview of the film by clicking here.David and I’ve had a chance to view the film and show clips of it at book talks. Our own impressions have been mirrored by others who have seen the film — that this is a a thoughtful and insightful rendition of “The Amish.” Much of the film is done in the voices of current members of various Amish communities. The cinematography is so beautiful, with meaningful symbolism throughout.So, I hope you get to see the film. If you happen to miss it on Tuesday, it will be available on their website after airing nationally.I hope you tune in to your PBS station on Tuesday, February 28 from 8 to 10 pm.Below are two behind-the-scenes shots of the day of our interview with the film crew.
