Two Great Special Events in March at the Redwood City Public Library

Redwood City, CA - March 4, 2010 - The Redwood City Public Library offers a great variety of activities and events each month, and March is no exception! In addition to the dozens of events, activities, and learning opportunities for toddlers, children, teens, adults, and families (online at www.redwoodcity.org/library), there are two particularly remarkable author/film events that are not to be missed:

  • Thursday, March 11 at 7 PM – Downtown Library Community Room
    Author Event: Logan & Noah Miller – Either You're in or You're in the Way - Two Brothers, Twelve Months, and One Filmmaking Hell-Ride to Keep a Promise to Their Father
    When identical twin brothers Logan and Noah Miller′s homeless father died alone in a jail cell, they vowed come hell or high water that their film, Touching Home, would be made as a dedication to their love for him. The amazing story of how-without a dime to their names nor a single meaningful contact in Hollywood-they managed to write, produce, act, and direct a feature film in under a year starring four-time Academy Award®-nominated actor Ed Harris that premiered at the San Francisco International Film Festival.  Touching Home will premier in the Bay Area this Spring.

  • Wednesday, March 24 at 6:30 PM – Downtown Library Community Room
    Movie Screening: Witch Hunt - Narrated by Sean Penn – Followed by a Q&A session with film producers, Innocence Project legal director, and exoneree John Stoll
    John Stoll thought he couldn’t be convicted of something he didn’t do. He was wrong. Directed by Dana Nachman & Don Hardy. 91 min, 2009.  Witch Hunt “Chronicles the swift sword of injustice in an infamous child-abuse case.” - Richard von Busack, San Jose Metro 
    Special Guests: Linda Starr, Northern California Innocence Project Legal Director; Dana Nachman and Don Hardy - Witch Hunt Directors/Producers; John Stoll, Exoneree.  The Innocence Project works to exonerate innocent prisoners and pursue legal reforms that address the causes and consequences of wrongful convictions.
The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and is the learning center of our community. For more information about library events and services you may access the library’s home page at www.redwoodcity.org/library or call 780-7026.
