Brown Bag Film Screening: “Bill Nye: Science Guy” – Wed, Nov. 28, 12 noon

This event is on November 28th, 2018 at 12:00pm

Please join us for our once-a-month film screening and short discussion of a PBS POV documentary.

Bill Nye is a man on a mission: to stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking across the world. The former star of the popular kids’ show “Bill Nye the Science Guy” is now advocating for the importance of science, research and discovery in public life. With intimate and exclusive access—as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy—this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution and a science-based worldview. The film features Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan and many others.

This film is 90 minutes long. Please bring your lunch; the library will provide drinks.
