Bryce and Caroline are excited to finally chat about the new Emilio Estevez film "The Public" which looks at some of the challenges facing a large urban library. Joining us to talk about the movie is librarian Angelica Thompson and social worker Hilary Kirkpatrick. Find out what the movie got right about working in a library and why EPL staff felt "seen" after watching it.

Our next episode will be available on Friday, June 7th. We'll be interviewing author Anthony Ray Hinton who will be our next Forward Thinking Speaker Series presenter on Jun 12th. Anthony Ray Hinton was released in April 2015 after spending 30 years on death row for crime he did not commit. He was released with the help of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), of which he is currently a Community Educator. Mr. Hinton was one of the longest serving death row prisoners in Alabama history and among the longest serving condemned prisoners to be freed after presenting evidence of innocence.
