Earth Day Documentary at the Clinton Library April 22, 2010

EARTH DAY DOCUMENTARY
SCREENING ON THURS. 4/22/10

A free screening of The Chances of the World Changing by Eric Daniel Metzgar and Nell Carden Grey will be shown at the Henry Carter Hull Library on Thursday, April 22, 2010 at 6:30 pm to celebrate Earth Day. This free event is a collaboration with Point Of View (POV), PBS’ award-winning non-fiction film series. Registration is not required.

A decade ago, after an epiphany at a New York restaurant, Richard Ogust began dedicating his time and resources to rescuing endangered turtles — confiscating hundreds bound for Southeast Asian food markets. When the filmmakers catch up with the 50-year-old writer, he is sharing his Manhattan loft with 1,200 turtles, including five species extinct in the wild. But his growing "ark" and preservation efforts are threatening to exhaust him, both mentally and financially. With luminous images and a haunting musical score, the award-winning The Chances of the World Changing documents two years in the life of a man who finds himself struggling to save hundreds of lives, including his own.

More information about this event can be found at www.hchlibrary.org or by calling the Henry Carter Hull Library at (860) 669-2342.

“Libraries are the heart of every community and our library helps our community thrive,” says Lisa Gugliotti, Reference Librarian. “At our library, people of all backgrounds come together for community meetings, lectures and programs, to do research, to get help finding a job or to find homework help, or to read current magazines and relax.”

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
