Where: Delafield Public Library, 500 Genesee St, Delafield, WI 53018

When: Thursday, April 5th at 6:00pm

The Delafield Public Library is hosting a free screening of Swim Team as a part of their Documentaries & Dialogues program. Documentaries & Dialogues is a monthly program where community members and library patrons are invited to attend a screening and discuss the film screened afterwards. The concept is similar to that of a book club. The goals of the program are to encourage community communication, promote continuing education, and help grow a community of global citizens.
Regarding this particular film, the goal for the event is to raise awareness regarding employment, religion, and compassion and in doing so foster a dialogue between community members about these issues.

Swim Team Conversation Starters:

Coach Mike acknowledges, “At one time or another all our kids have been ostracized.” Why do you think kids with autism (or other disabilities) are so commonly ostracized? What role does culture or human nature play in that dynamic? What do you think could be done to make acceptance or inclusion the norm?
