Join us for a free screening of Life, Animated (PG, 91 minutes) in the Kimball Junction Branch Auditorium. The film is based on the memoir Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism by Ron Suskind. After the screening, we will have an optional discussion about the book and the film. The audiobook is always available on Libby, and the e-book and book are also available to check out.
