WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS LIBRARY ADVOCATES ANNUAL MEETING
WMLA's 2019 annual meeting features a screening of the newly released film "The Public" to be followed by a panel discussion on the film featuring librarians and library based social workers who specialize in serving homeless patrons.
"The Public" (2019, Universal Pictures) stars Alec Baldwin, Emilio Esteves, and Jena Malone. In the film, homeless patrons at a Cincinnatti public library stage a sit-in during an unusually cold weather event. This David v. Goliath story tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues: homelessness and mental health, and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.
Pizza will be served sponsored by our hosts at the Forbes Library. A brief annual business meeting will be included during the afternoon.
