Celebrate Our Human Family @ the Lander Library – This week, “Unstoppable”
We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike.
–from the poem Human Family by Maya Angelou
This January and February the Lander Library presents a new documentary series called Our Human Family. What are the common elements of being human? Every person lives, dreams, thinks, hopes, struggles, grows, and dies. Appreciation, sympathy, and respect for each are possible despite differences of culture, philosophy, and personal choices.
This event is free and open to the public.
Thursday, Jan. 16th at 6:30pm: Bethany Hamilton—Unstoppable
Born into a family of surfers in Kauai, Bethany Hamilton began surfing competitively at eight years old. In 2003, at age 13, she was out surfing when she was attacked by a 15-foot tiger shark, a run-in that cost her her left arm. But not only did she survive the attack—she was back on the competitive circuit just a year later. More than a decade later, Hamilton undertakes the greatest challenges of her life.
Please join us each Thursday January 2-February 20 at 6:30 pm in the Carnegie Room for a variety of human stories from here at home and around the world.
