BirdMan Coffee and Books
You are invited to a screening of a film, "The Art of the Storm" on Saturday evening, Sept. 22nd at 7:00. Lori Gordon says the following: "The title of the film is 'The Art of the Storm', and it follows the lives of several Mississippi Gulf Coast artists as we struggle to rebuild our lives and resume our careers after Hurricane Katrina. It tells the story of a group of people from Minneapolis who reached out to the arts community, offering venues and free shipping for our work for months at a time. I will be present and available to answer questions after the film is shown. The documentary is just under an hour long."
