Based on a true story, this feature film follows a World War II platoon as they track down art stolen by the Nazis and return the masterpieces to their rightful owners. Following the film, Dr. Greg Smith, WWU associate professor of English and film, will lead a discussion about the movie and the University of Washington's crew team's experiences at the 1936 Berlin Olympic games, as recounted in this year's One Read selection, "The Boys in the Boat."
Come take part in a storytelling circle at the North Village Farmers and Artisans Market. Stories are encouraged to be true, told without notes and inspired by themes present in "The Boys in the Boat," this year's One Read selection. If you can't make it to this open-mic session, contact KOPN to set up a one-on-one recording session with one of our Porch Light production volunteers. With permission, we will broadcast your stories on KOPN 89.5FM.
Looking for new audiences? This session will cover the role libraries can play to help the entrepreneur. What kinds of information do they need for a business plan? Do you have the resources to help them? What gems do your databases hold? Do you know where to refer them? Intended for any library that serves business clientele or would like to. If you have tried and true resources to share with the group, bring them to the session. There will be a little time set aside to share those. Our goal is that everyone will come away with new ideas to serve their communities' entrepreneurs.
