?Salt of the Earth? Film Screening

A reception and showing of the unique semi-documentary "Salt of the Earth" will take place Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Downtown Center. This film is based on a 1951 zinc miner's strike that took place in Silver City, New Mexico. Since "Bless Me, Ultima" is situated in New Mexico during roughly the same time frame, it will help provide context for the book. http://www.class.cpp.edu/downtowncenter/bigread/events.html
