South End Library and MSPCC Will Screen "The Preacher's Son," A Movie About Non-traditional Adoption, Tuesday, May 29, 5:30 PM

On May 29, the South End Library is hosting a film screening of The Preacher's Son, a 2009 movie about a male couple that builds a family with five children through adoption from "the train wreck" of foster care. The couple, Greg Stewart, a minister and preacher's son, and Stilman White, took the five boys --among whom were two sets of siblings-- and moved them from California to the American heartland. The screening is sponsored by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC). After the film presentation (86 minutes), there will be an informal discussion about non-traditional and cross-racial adoption. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the South End Library. The South End branch is located at 685 Tremont Street, between Rutland Square and West Newton Street. Phone: 617 536-8241. Starts at 5:30 PM.
