EIU’s Geology and Geography to screen docu-series: One Strange Rock

 

EIU’s Department of Geology and Geography has the honor of pre-screening a new docu-series by National Geographic entitled,
“One Strange Rock.”

“One Strange Rock is a mind bending, thrilling journey that explores the fragility and wonder of planet Earth – one of the most peculiar, unique places in the universe.”

Directed by award winning filmmaker Darren Aronofsky and narrated by actor and musician Will Smith, it features perspectives from 10 astronauts on the wonders of the Earth as seen from space.

The EIU community gets a first look at the film on Thursday, March 8th,  from 12:30 – 2:00 in the Physical Science Building, room 3040. The rest of the country won’t get to see the film until March 26th!

Light refreshments will be provided.

AzkaBanned Books – Banned Books and Intellectual Freedom

Our Harry Potter: Celebrating a Phenomenon exhibit happily coincides with Banned Books Week, September 24-30. So what do Harry Potter and Banned Books have in common? Harry Potter has faced many challenges in school and public libraries over the past twenty years. Fortunately, in more recent years, critics have left Harry Potter alone, but other books have taken its place on the top ten challenged books of the year. Books receive challenges for a variety of reasons, the most common being religion, sex, language, or even just encouraging young readers to disrespect their elders.

Come to the Marvin Foyer to look at a variety of children’s titles that have been challenged over the years. Exercise your first amendment rights and check out a banned book.
