CORE presents award-winning education documentaries

In conjunction with the opening of the new Centre for Outreach Education (CORE), the Faculty of Education will present two award-wining films.

“Library of the Early Mind: A Grown-up Look at the Art of Children’s Literature” will be screened on Jan. 20. This documentary explores the significance of children’s literature in modern culture. Over 40 authors, illustrators and publishers were interviewed for the documentary.

On Jan. 21, “Including Samuel” will be shown. Shot and produced over four years, the film chronicles the efforts of photojournalist Dan Habib and his family to include his son Samuel, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, in every facet of their lives. Admission is free, but a donation of a gently used book will be appreciated. Both films will be shown from 7–9 p.m. in the David Lam Auditorium, MacLaurin Building.
