Library focuses on James Baldwin's work during events
Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs will present a special Book & Film edition of the library book club, with a focus on James Baldwin in June.
Community members are invited to read and discuss "The Fire Next Time" at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the library conference room. A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, "The Fire Next Time" galvanized the nation and gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement.
As a follow-up to the discussion, the library will present a free community screening of "I Am Not Your Negro," Raoul Peck's Academy Award nominee for best documentary film, from the writings of Baldwin told in the voice of Samuel L. Jackson, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 20 in Library Hall.
