UMA Libraries presents a live viewing and discussion of the documentary, REBOUND.

REBOUND follows two women from starkly different circumstances as they rebound from incarceration and seek refuge and opportunity in academia. Struggling to recognize their worth and still reeling from years of trauma, these aspiring scholars navigate personal and financial insecurity, motherhood, and their own healing. As each leaps into the pursuit of higher education and self-transformation, they each find acceptance, sisterhood, and hope for a new life.

When: Wednesday, October 26th from 12-2:30 pm
Where: Farber Forum & Zoomhttps://maine.zoom.us/j/85438608057
