The screening will take place at the stately San Francisco Public Library / Main Library in their Koret Auditorium.

“VISIONS OF WARRIORS” TO SCREEN AT THE L.A. PUBLIC LIBRARY / MEMORIAL BRANCH LIBRARY

“Visions of Warriors” will be screening at the L.A. Public Library / Memorial Branch Library on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 12:30 p.m. in celebration of the upcoming Veterans Day. We are deeply honored to work with the L.A. Public Library again to celebrate Veterans Day. The Memorial Branch Library has a rich history. The land on which it is located was deeded by Los Angeles High School to the City of Los Angeles in 1923 to honor twenty alumni who died while serving in WWI. The Gothic Revival-style library was built in 1930 and designed by John C. Austin, who was the lead architect of the Griffith Observatory. The students of L.A. High School commissioned the renowned Judson Studios to create a beautiful stained glass window with the names of the twenty alumni and an inscription, “Peace Among Nations.” The library is listed on the the National Register of Historic Places. Thank you to Deborah Matthews, Loren Spector, Eugene Owens, and the L.A. Public Library for organizing this special event!
