The film, “The Education of Little Tree” starring James Cromwell will be shown at the library as part of the Faces of Family series.

James Cromwell (Babe) stars in this heartwarming adaptation of the acclaimed best-seller about an eight-year-old Cherokee boy in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains during the 1930’s.

That boy is Little Tree (Joseph Ashton), sent to live with his mountain-dwelling grandparents after the loss of his mother and father. It’s the beginning of a new life for Little Tree, filled with joy, discovery, setbacks, triumphs and good friends like mystical Cherokee seer Willow John (Graham Greene). Life is hard during the depression, but for Little Tree it’s an unforgettable time of growing up.

The discussion will also include participants at the Wyoming Women’s Center via audio. A free meal will be provided as well as the opportunity for discussion, be sure to attend this event.
