Library Programs for Adults Homelessness: The Voices of the Unheard Mondays: August 14, 21, 28 5:30-7:00pm What are the stories of our community's homeless? What do we know about homelessness? What actions can we take to support community members who may be experiencing homelessness? To explore these questions, Neill Public Library partners with facilitator and WSU graduate student Nancy Carvajal Medina to host three workshops to dig below the surface of homelessness in our community. Participants will develop new understandings on the houseless experiences by exploring our worlds and acting from the positions we occupy in the community. Each workshop is different; participants may attend one, or all, of the series. Advance Care Planning Seminar Thursday, August 20, 6:00pm Friends of Hospice and Neill Public Library invite you to attend a community screening of Being Mortal, a documentary featuring surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande and the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. The one-hour fi lm will be followed by a group discussion about Advance Care Planning and how to communicate wishes about end-of-life preferences. The Civil War in Cinema : From Birth of a Nation to Ken Burns Monday, September 25, 5:30pm The American Civil War has been a perennially popular subject in cinema. The war had been over for less than fi fty years when movies began to reach the public on a large scale; some veterans were still alive to see their likenesses captured in celluloid. Over one hundred years later, this near- constant obsession with the Civil War not only refl ects the nation's ongoing attempt to understand a most traumatic period, it also illuminates changing attitudes about national identity and character. Join us in a conversation about the cinema the war has inspired and how it refl ects changes in our nation. There's no better time to visit YOUR library. Check out materials, download great books, attend wonderful programs and more! There's always something for you and yours at Neill Public Library. Come visit us soon!
