Goodnight Mr. Vincent Van Gogh Film Screening and Q & A – By now at least some of you have seen this film and know how powerful it is. This is only a week away, so I’m going to try my best to promote it! Remember, in order to “attend” (virtually) you need to register on the library website to receive the Zoom link, but you need not live in Chicago or have a library card to attend, you can tune in from anywhere in the world (what a wonderful sci-fi future society we live in today).
I have never seen anything quite like this gentle animated short, which never fails to provoke tears from me but so beautifully conveys such a simple yet accurate description of suicide. Anyone interested in children’s book illustrations, suicide awareness and prevention, Vincent Van Gogh, or all of these things will appreciate this gem, and perhaps it will light a spark and start a conversation for those who are not.
Lindsey Doolittle is a passionate author, artist, educator, and suicide activist. She has ample experience speaking about suicide, including her personal story, and will be available for what should be an enlightening Q & A afterward.
Oh, and did I fail to mention, this completely unique one-time event, which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home, is absolutely *free*?
I really hope to “see” some of our audience members there…but it’s only a week away, and *don’t forget* you do have to do the five-second registration thing on the website because we don’t want to make the Zoom link public for security reasons.
Any questions about registration, drop us a message here. Registration page: https://chipublib.bibliocommons.com/…/615f0d88d0e33f360…
Be well, everyone.
