We are disappointed that we are not able to attend the Society for Media Studies (SCMS) Annual Conference. We will miss all the great conversations and sense of community. Since the COVID-19 virus has many of us sitting home and practicing social distancing, we thought we’d relocate our booth from the mile-high city to your fingertips via our blog. We invite you to grab a tub of popcorn and settle in to spend the next five days discovering new books with Philip Leventhal, our editor in film and media studies, and Ryan Groendyk, our editor for Wallflower. We also have a great selection of guest posts by our authors, including film recommendations. 

We would also like to invite you to browse our Film, Media, and Journalism Studies catalog and our full list of film and media studies books.
