WHEN: Tuesday, July 11 at 7 PM

WHERE: Foster Auditorium, the Paterno Library

About the film: The Bang Bang Club, based on true events, follows four combat photographers in South Africa near the end of the apartheid. 

* You do not need to have read all of It's What I Do by Lynsey Addario to participate in this film discussion. *

Library Escape Room!

The cornerstone of the Pattee Library is missing. Dismayed at the lack of appreciation for all his great grandfather has done for Penn State (especially since 1901), Fred Lewis Pattee the IV has taken it. He will only return it to the person or persons who can successfully follow the clues, proving their appreciation of his great-grandfather and what he meant to the history of the university.
