Pamela Camille will sign copies of her new book “Awakening the Sun Quartz Fields” at Neighbors Book Store from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday.
The book is for young adults and adults who are young – the book-signing party at Neighbors should be a good time.
Films discussed Fridays at LTCC
On successive Friday evenings in May, the following films and/or discussions will take place in the Lake Tahoe Community College Theater at 7:30 p.m.:
n Friday: “The Fog of War” followed by a discussion about the relevance of the film to current events.
“The Fog of War” won the Academy Award this year for Best Documentary Feature. The film tells the story of America as seen through the eyes of Robert S. McNamara, the Secretary of Defense during the Vietnam War – essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand how the American government justifies the use of military force. Combining extraordinary archival footage, re-creations, newly declassified White House recordings, and an original score by Oscar-nominated composer Philip Glass, the film is a disquieting and powerful essay on war, rationality, and our understanding of history.
After the film, the Peace and Justice committee, a local group of concerned citizens, will facilitate a discussion about the relevance of the film to current U.S. foreign policy and the situation in Iraq. Tickets for the film are $5 for general admission, $4 for seniors, kids, and staff, and $3 for LTCC students. Tickets are being sold in advance at the Student Services office on the campus. For more information, call (530) 541-4660 ext. 512.
n May 21: “Men With Guns” – a film by John Sayles, in conjunction with MultiCultural Week.
n May 28: “Touching the Void” – a true story, co-sponsored by the Tahoe Adventure Club.
