Niobrara County Library
The Niobrara County Library is pleased to present a dinner and movie series "Images of Walking" featuring films that depict a life-changing journey made by foot.
"The Way" will be featured on October 26 at 6 p.m. "The Way" is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James. Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his "California Bubble Life." Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey. On his journey, Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, each with their own issues and looking for greater meaning in their lives. This film is PG-13 and 123 minutes.
A light meal will be included and Deane Tucker, PhD., Chadron State College will lead the discussions which may include participants from WWC.
Niobrara County Library programs are free and open to the public.
