Upcoming POV Community Screenings

by |

This weekend several of our public library partners will gather their communities for free screenings of POV films, including Kings of Pastry and The Learning , selections from our most recent season.

Scroll down to see which libraries are gearing up for screenings and discussions of POV films or find screenings near you! And don’t forget to check out our Delve Deeper lists put together by our great library partners. They’re multi-media resource lists of related fiction and non-fiction books and films that can help you understand the issues addressed in each film in greater depth. You can find a link to each film’s reading list in the left column of the film’s companion site!
