"In Country" Movie Screening and Book Discussion at Maiden Alley Cinema
The mobile traveling exhibit "The Wall that Heals," a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, is coming to Paducah's Carson Park from October 25-28. Prepare for this special event by attending a free public screening of the movie based on western Kentucky native and PEN/Hemingway Award winning author Bobbie Ann Mason's novel "In Country."
Following the showing of the acclaimed 1989 movie adaptation, which was filmed in and around Paducah and stars Bruce Willis, will be a literary discussion of the novel and movie led by library staff.
Also attending to provide a soldier's perspective will be Robert Worden, a Vietnam veteran and department service officer for the Disabled American Veterans.
