Angel R. Rivera just let us know that the University of Texas at Tyler Library is participating in the project. Their event centers around a screening of the film, Good Night and Good Luck:

The screening will take place in the Library’s Room 401 at 7:00pm on Thursday, September 11, 2008.

Dr. Courtney Cullison, Assistant Professor of Political Science, will deliver some opening remarks and help place the film in context for the audience. This event is free and open to the public.
