On Monday, September 11, at 7 p.m., the Library will feature a special film, “The 11 th of September: Moyers in Conversation,” in the Mackay Room to mark the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Bill Moyers has been one of the most thoughtful and penetrating of broadcast journalists working in the mainstream media in the wake of the
September 11 attacks.
Moyers did a series of interviews with academics, theologians, authors and artists about the events that are just as relevant as we ponder world events five years later. A discussion will follow the film, if the audience desires. Ann Sparanese, Head of Adult and Young Adult Services, will be the discussion leader.
