Film, 'The Public' showing at the Hiawatha Library July 18
"The Public," a film directed and written by Emilio Estevez, will be shown at the Hiawatha Public Library Thursday, July 18, at 6 pm.
The 2018 American drama has an all-star cast, including Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater, as well as Estevez. The film had its world premiere on September 9, 2018, at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was theatrically released in the United States on April 5, 2019, by Universal Pictures.
After learning that emergency shelters are at full capacity when a brutal Midwestern cold front makes its way to Cincinnati, a large group of homeless library patrons led by Jackson (Michael Kenneth Williams) refuse to leave the downtown public library at closing time. What begins as a nonviolent Occupy-style sit-in and ragtag act of civil disobedience quickly escalates into a standoff with local riot police, led by a no-nonsense crisis negotiator (Alec Baldwin) and a savvy district attorney (Christian Slater) with lofty political ambitions, all as two librarians (Emilio Estevez and Jena Malone) are caught in the middle.
Friends of the Hiawatha Library Raise Funds for Programming
The Friends of the Hiawatha Library are a group of people who meet monthly to brainstorm about how to raise funds for the the library's excellent children and adult programming. Many of the programs can be attended free of charge because of the group's fundraising efforts.
'Pardon the Mess'
The Hiawatha Library is going through some major changes; but in the end, it will be worth the mess.
The construction is part of the renovation and expansion project the library has been working on the past few years. Construction will continue through the end of this year and into the next. An official completion date will be available soon.
Programs and activities will still be held at the library, whenever possible. For more information, visit the library's website.
