Local author and film historian, Michael Thomas Masters, will be presenting a unique program about tolerance entitled, “Never to Be Forgotten” at the Davenport Public Library, Fairmount Street location (3000 N. Fairmount Street) on Saturday, September 27, at 1:00 PM.
Masters will read his short story, “Remembrance,” which is tale of caring, sharing, and understanding that takes place at a bus stop in San Francisco in December of 1991. As two young men wait for the city bus, they strike up a memorable conversation with a haunting conclusion.
Complimenting this poignant story will be a showing of the 1995 feature-film, The Cure. Directed by Peter Horton, The Cure, centers around two neighborhood boys who become close friends. One of the boys has contracted AIDS via a blood transfusion, and they go on a memorable journey to find the cure.
