SAVE-THE-DATE – Tues Sept 2 6:30pm – Monthly Meeting SPECIAL film showing !

A BIRDER’S GUIDE TO EVERYTHING

Save the date! Join us for a special event monthly meeting at the Palm Beach County Library Main Branch at 3650 Summit Boulevard, West Palm Beach where we will screen this full-length feature film, a coming of age story about teen birdwatchers. When a fifteen-year-old birder thinks he’s made the discovery of a lifetime, he and his best friends set out on a road trip to solidify their place in birding history. The film, which has famed actor, Ben Kingsley, in a supporting role, received positive reviews when it premiered earlier this year, with particular praise in Audubon Magazine.

You will need to register for this FREE movie. Please call the library at 233-2600, and connect to the information desk to register. Doors open at 6:30 for refreshments and a brief meeting. The film starts promptly at 7:00.
