|Reynolds Professor Carlos Ossandon|
Around the World through Books and Around the World through Movies presented a joint program on Friday, September 23 related to the 2010 Chilean mine disaster.
Associate Professor Carlos Ossandon guided a discussion of the book, Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free, and the movie that brings the book to life, The 33, in the Workforce Development Conference Center.
Professor Ossandon, whose connection to the 2010 mining disaster is heightened because he himself is from Chile, provided context about the events before the audience viewed the movie, and afterward answered questions about the film and the people involved.
Around the World through Books and Around the World through Movies, two subcommittees of the Multicultural Enrichment Council, sponsored the program. Copies of the book and the movie may be checked out from Reynolds Libraries.
The next MEC event will be a discovery of the Hindu festival Navratri on Tuesday, October 4, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Downtown Campus, in the Community Room. MEC events are free and open to the public.
