Final Big Read Documentary Tuesday, April 27, 7 pm

The final in the Big Read documentary series, The Fog of War will be shown on Tuesday, April 27 at 7 pm. In this filmed interview Roger Ebert has observed that McNamara “talks introspectively about his life, his thoughts about Vietnam, and… of his role in planning the firebombing of Japan, including a raid on Tokyo that claimed 100,000 lives. He speaks concisely and forcibly, rarely searching for a word, and he is not reciting boilerplate and old sound bites.” Screening is free and open to the public.
This documentary film is presented by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum in support of The Big Read, an NEA-funded project encouraging the reading and discussion of Tim O’Brien’s compelling novel, The Things They Carried, during the month of April.
