Amateur Hour, the Institute Library’s monthly series curated by Joshua Foer and Jack Hitt, explores the passions and pursuits of America’s most inspiring fanatics, obsessives, tinkerers, and collectors.
Our most recent Amateur Hour, Number 19: Jedi Knight featuring Alex Bird, was Friday, September 30th.

Amateur Hour is made possible through the generous support of CT Humanities and Virginia Quarterly Review (VQR). VQR is now publishing a section on selected Amateur Hour installments in every issue: pick up a copy at Atticus Bookstore or read one online at www.vqronline.org!
