I’m helping to host a nice little screening of the documentary Library of the Early Mind in my branch in November. This will mark the film’s first New York City screening, followed by a question-and-answer session with the filmmakers, and it is free and open to the public. It is because I love you. That, and the fact that the filmmakers were nice enough to agree to show it in our auditorium.
