Deepwater Horizon

 

 

Friday Flicks
Looking for something to do on a Friday morning? The Lincoln Public Library is showing Deepwater Horizon on March 3rd at 10:00 AM on the big screen in the Program Room.

Forty miles off the coast of Louisiana, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig drills for oil in The Gulf of Mexico when disaster strikes. An explosion onboard kills several crew members, injures many others, and puts the lives of the entire crew in danger as they battle for survival. Based on the events of April, 2010, the explosion and subsequent fire result in the worst oil spill in American history, and far-reaching tragedy for American families, and put the heroism and grit of surviving crew members to the test.

Monthly Book Discussion
The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussion group that meets on the last Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM in the Program Room. All are welcome to attend. On February 23rd we will be discussing Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson.
Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption
Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship and transformed his understandingof mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer's coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.
