'Make Sure its Me' at HPL

HAMPSTEAD - On Tues., October 8, ACT ONE will present the special library version of “Make Sure It’s Me”, a community discussion about Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as experienced by members of the American military and some civilians as well.

The version that you will see at the library is based on the play by Kate Wenner. The play is a fictionalized account of five brain injured veterans and the medical researcher who is committed to their care. Wenner, an award winning former producer on ABC’s 20/20, based her script on interviews with many service members, their families and medical experts.

Stephanie Voss Nugent, founder of ACT ONE, and Leslie Pasternak, her co-producer, will be joined by retired US Army Sgt. Conan Marchi, a decorated veteran of the conflict in Iraq. They will join together to present information about TBI and to read selected scenes from the play that highlight the impact of TBI on service members and their families.

TBI is a very real and devastating injury suffered by members of the military in combat situations. It manifests in a variety of ways, most of them emotionally draining and often physically so as well. This moving and amazing play has left audiences drained and in tears.

Please join ACT ONE and the Friends of the Hampstead Public Library at 7:00 p.m., on October 8th for this exceptional program. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available.

Members of the Friends are invited to remain after the program for the regular monthly meeting of the organization.
