Dubuque library to screen part of Vietnam War documentary

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Carnegie Stout Library in Dubuque is one of just 50 libraries across the country to be selected for screenings of "The Vietnam War" documentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.

The first screening will be Sunday, Oct. 1 in the library's Aigler Auditorium at 2:00 p.m. Elaine Palen, whose brother-in-law Carl Anthony "Tony" Palen of Dubuque, was listed as missing in action in Vietnam in 1971, will be a guest speaker at the event.

The library is also creating a Facebook group for Dubuque-area veterans, their families and others who want to share letters, photos and stories from the Vietnam War.

The documentary film "The Vietnam War" is rated TV-MA and includes coarse language and graphic violence. The film and discussions may trigger anxiety or anger, especially for those with PTSD.

For more details about upcoming screenings and the Facebook group, please visit the Library at www.facebook.com/carnegiestout or www.dubuque.lib.ia.us, or call us at 563-589-4225
