To Kill a Mockingbird Film & Discussion
New Hampshire Humanities has awarded a grant to the NH Institute for Civics Education for film screenings in all ten NH counties to generate multigenerational conversations about law, justice, and civics. Through Lights, Camera, Civics!, a film will be offered each year, chosen to appeal to a range of ages and demographics. Local teams made up of a lawyer, a teacher, and a high school student will lead the discussions.
The film selected for 2018-19 is To Kill A Mockingbird which will be presented in the kick-off event on January 27. A light lunch will be provided. Discussion facilitators include Patrick Anderson, Colby Sawyer College humanities professor and film expert; Attorney Dina Michael Chaitowitz, former appellate chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston; and a yet-to-be-selected local high school student.
This event is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required.
