Event Description:

Even though he lived with developmental disabilities and faced financial challenges, Larry Selman devoted his life to collecting thousands of dollars for charitable organizations. When his elderly uncle and only caretaker began to have health problems, Larry’s New York City neighbors rallied to create a trust fund for him. Don’t miss this inspiring account of a complex and loving man who continues to give to his community and the community that gave back to him. See the award-winning short film created by Larry’s friend and neighbor, Alice Elliot, and join in a discussion and Q&A with both Larry and Alice. A related art exhibit featuring artists Paul Neufelder and Thaniel Lee will be on display in the JCC Gallery, October 24-November 30. Donations requested. Classroom resources are available. Presented by the Ann Katz Festival of Books at the Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center, Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, and VSA arts of Indiana.
