Movie: American Pastime

Cover of 'American Pastime' ©Warner Home VideoJoin us Monday, October 17, at 6 pm for a free showing of the movie American Pastime ©Warner Home Video in the library Meeting Room on our new theater projection system. American Pastime is based on a true story about Japanese Americans in an internment camp in Utah during World War II. Though the topic is a tragic part of our nation's history, the movie is uplifting and inspiring. The running time is 1 hour and 45 minutes; the movie is not rated, but a suggested audience is PG-13. Popcorn and refreshments.

This movie will be shown as a part of the Gulf Coast Reads program. The title selected for this year is The Train to Crystal City by Jan Jarboe Russell, which tells the true but little known story about an internment camp in Texas during World War II.

For other book discussions and other programs at Harris County Public Library branches please see the Gulf Coast Reads Events Calendar.
