In honor of Veteran’s Day, the JKPL has partnered with the Dyersville American Legion to screen the film Almost Sunrise. This film is about two Iraq veterans, who in an attempt to put haunting combat experiences behind them embark on an epic 2,700-mile trek on foot across America, seeking redemption and healing as a way to close the moral chasm opened by war. Tom and Anthony came through Dyersville in September 2013 and local landmarks and people are a part of the film. Pat Valant, member of the Dyersville American Legion, will introduce the film and facilitate an informal discussion and Q&A after the film for any veterans or family that want to share their stories or experiences. Not Rated (138 min.).
