Homeless to Harvard film at the library


"I was 15 when I went out in the world. What's a home anyway? A roof? A bed? A place where when you go there, they have to take you?" Liz Murray, Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story.

As part of the 2014-2015 One Book program, the library will screen the film Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story on Monday, September 22, starting at noon in the library's periodicals room.  The film runs 104 minutes, and stars Thora Birch (American Beauty, Patriot Games) as Liz Murray. The film was directed by Peter Levin, who also directed the popular TV dramas Judging Amy and Joan of Arcadia.  

Homeless to Harvard is based on Liz Murray's book Breaking Night, the 2014-2015 choice for the PVCC One Book program. 

Please join us! We will have popcorn (limited supplies) for attendees.
