Join the Jesup Memorial Library and the Jackson Laboratory for films and discussions that will feature a real-life perspective on the research the Jackson Laboratory does. Each film screening and discussion is free and open to the public. All films will be shown at the Jesup Memorial Library and begin at 7 p.m., with a community social preceding the event at 6:30 p.m. On Thursday, Oct. 13, explore the battle against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). “So Much, So Fast” is a black-humored cliffhanger of romance, outsider science and the meaning of time. It follows the events set in motion when Stephen Heywood discovers he has ALS and his brother Jamie becomes obsessed with finding a cure. The discussion afterwards will be facilitated by Dr. Gregory Cox, an ALS researcher at The Jackson Laboratory.
