Virtual Premiere Screening: The Making of Joe Wheeler: A Concord Story.

The Trustees of the Concord Free Public Library Corporation cordially invite you to an online premiere screening of The Making of Joe Wheeler: A Concord Story on Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.

Born on Thoreau Farm in 1926, Joe Wheeler went on to help farmers and others across the world. His idealism was forged in the historic town of Concord, MA during the Depression and World War II. Motivated to help build a war-free, prosperous world, he spent most of his life abroad assisting others through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Peace Corps, and the United Nations. He is an environmentalist, a globalist and a feminist. 

There will be a discussion with the filmmaker and Joe Wheeler after the screening. Advance registration is required. To register for this online event and to receive further details,  please R.S.V.P. to:

Supported by the Concord Cultural Council and Minuteman Media Network, the film was produced and directed by Susan Orleans Rieder in collaboration with the Concord Free Public Library.
