WALLA & Friends Present this 2013 Documentary


John MuirMonday, July 27 at 6:45 p.m.

at the West Lafayette Public Library

87 minutes, Not Rated


In an epic snow year, five friends leave their daily lives behind to hike California's historic John Muir Trail, a 211-mile stretch from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney (the highest peak in the contiguous U.S.). Their goal - complete the journey in 25 days while capturing the amazing sights & sounds they encounter along the way. Inspired by their bond, humor, artistry & dedication, the group continues to grow: to include other artists, musicians & adventure seekers. Before they all reach the summit, hikers and viewers alike affirm the old adage - it's about the journey, not the destination.   Please call or come into the Library to learn the title of this film: 765-743-2261.

Detractors of modern-day Israel often compare it to apartheid South Africa, but how valid are those claims? Journalist Benjamin Pogrund, who has lived in both modern Israel and apartheid South Africa, examines the comparison in his book Drawing Fire: Investigating the Accusations of Apartheid in Israel. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
