The Friends of the Somerville Public Library invite you to a screening of the archival documentary In The Blood. Creator Sumner McKane has scoured Maine's archives, museums and historical societies, for films, photographs, and oral histories - to explicate the life, work, and character of the Maine lumbermen and river drivers. The tales, stories, and interviews - told by the men themselves- are honest and raw, and invoke emotion and disbelief. 73 mins.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own stories or camp recipes to share. Bean supper to follow.

Screening will take place February 9th, 2pm, at the Central Branch of the Somerville Public Library (79 Highland Avenue, Somerville, MA). Bus #88 or #90.
