American St. Nick – Film Screening

October 12, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

[et_pb_section][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text]The previously scheduled October 12 Education Program at the Wright Museum of WWII has been cancelled. However, the documentary film “The American St, Nick” will be screened on October 12 from 7-8:00pm.

The film “The American St. Nick” is based on the book by the same name by author Peter Lion. Lion will be present for the screening and will discuss the making of the film by the WWII Foundation’s Tim Gray.

Lion spoke about his book at the Wright Museum on September 12, 2021. This is a wonderful opportunity to actually see the people, places and events that comprise the true story of how a handful of American GIs bring Christmas back to a small Luxembourg town caught up in World War II. It is a heart-warming Christmas tale that spans seven decades and continues to this day, honoring the sacrifices of all American soldiers who helped liberate Europe in WWII.

Museum doors open at 6:00pm and the Lion presentation begins at 7:00. The film will be shown at the Museum in the new DuQuoin Education Center.

Admission is $3 per person for Museum Members and $8 for non-Members. Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made by calling the Museum at 603-569-1212.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
