Fromm Talk, Vietnam Night Coming Up at Library

Posted: 10/17/2017 3:00:21 PM
The Author Talk with Pete Fromm, discussing his latest book, “The Names of the Stars,” is this Friday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m., at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library.

The evening with the Montana author, who also wrote “Indian Creek Chronicles,” is co-sponsored by The Well-Read Moose and the Friends of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library.

On Monday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m., the library will host “A Vietnam Dialogue: Ken Burns for Educators” in partnership with Idaho Public Television.

The program will include a screening of a 63-minute compilation of the 18-hour documentary produced by Burns and Lynn Novick followed by a discussion, featuring panelists that included area Vietnam Veterans, and a review of resources available to teachers from PBS.

This free program is primarily intended for educators but is open to any interested adult. Due the graphic nature of some of the material in the documentary, this screening is not recommended for children.
