Tuesday Night Theater: "The Way We Get By"

Tuesday, September 17 › 6-7:30 p.m.

The documentary "The Way We Get By" examines how community involvement improves the lives of the elderly and provides a portrait of the benefits and limitations of life in a small town. Ultimately, it reminds viewers of the tremendous power of simple acts of human kindness. This film complements our One Read title, "Nomadland" whose subjects are mostly older Americans finding creative ways to cope with a changing economy. Directed by Aron Gaudet. Shown in collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series (www.pbs.org/pov). 2009, 90 minutes.
