In conjunction with the Special Exhibit September 11, 2001: A Global Moment, the Museum will host a book discussion and film screening of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

In Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close we meet nine-year-old Oskar Schell, who lost his father during the September 11th attacks. The story follows Oskar on a journey through New York as he searches for the meaning of a key found in a vase amongst his father’s belongings.

On May 8, 2012, at 6pm, we will meet to discuss and reflect upon Jonathan Safran Foer’s 2005 bestseller. The discussion will be held in a moderated book-club style. The following week, on May 15th at 7pm, we will screen the Oscar-nominated 2011 film adaptation starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.

Copies of the book will be available soon through the Museum Store. All those interested in film and literature are encouraged to attend. Both events will take place in the Stage Door Canteen and are free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended. Grab a bite in the American Sector before the events; Happy Hour is from 3-6pm.

For more information or to reserve a spot, please call 504-528-1944 x264 or email laura.sparaco@nationalww2museum.org.
