In conjunction with a three-county reading event featuring the book, We Are Called to Rise, by Laura McBride, the Warsaw Public Library will present a screening of the film, The Way We Get By. This film documents the efforts of greeters at a small Maine airport, who show up to welcome home veterans at all times of day and night. The intertwining of the stories of these senior citizens and the young people who are returning creates a poignant examination of home and connection. For more information, call (585) 786-5650.
