posted by Billie Owens in Event.

Event:  Reel Discussions

Place:  Richmond Memorial Library, 19 Ross St., Batavia

Come view the movie and join us for a group discussion afterward. On Tuesday, Aug. 13th at 6 p.m., we will be showing the movie is “October Sky” and RML Reference Librarian, Jim Doyle, will be the discussion leader.

In the movie, John Hickam is a West Virginia coal miner who loves his job and expects his sons, Jim and Homer, to follow in his footsteps. But Jim gets a football scholarship, and Homer becomes interested in rocket science after seeing Sputnik 1 crossing the sky. John disapproves of his son's new mania, but Homer begins building rockets with the help of friends and a sympathetic teacher. Rocketry, he hopes, will prove his ticket to a better life.
