The Norwalk community is invited to a screening of "McFarland USA" in recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month. "McFarland USA" tells the true story of a Caucasian track coach, Jim White, as he begins his tenure in a predominantly Latino high-school in California's Central Valley. As White and his new students get to know each other, he realizes the boys' exceptional running ability and these begin to change as he guides underdog runners into champions. A panel discussion led by Norwalk Latinos Mariella Castagnet - Greater Norwalk Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President, Daniel Rodriguez and Kamille Claudio - Library Assistants at the South Norwalk Branch Library and others, will follow the screening. Popcorn and soda will be provided.
