SB Library will show this documentary film to the public
When: Friday, Oct. 4, 2013, 7 p.m.
Where: S.B. Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St., Santa Barbara
Age limit: All ages
Presented as part of the Santa Barbara Public Library System's 5-week community reading and discussion program, The Big Read.
A film about growing up, Where Soldiers Come From is an intimate look at the young men who fight our wars and the families and town they come from. Returning to her hometown, Director Heather Courtney gains extraordinary access following these young men as they grow and change from reckless teenagers, to soldiers looking for roadside bombs in Afghanistan, to 23-year-old veterans dealing with the silent war wounds of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and PTSD.
The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. The Santa Barbara Public Library System has chosen Tim O'Brien's classic novel, The things They Carried, for this one-book one-community program.
