First Friday Salon presents monthly films, discussions


The First Friday Salon, a free film series that started in February, will continue on Friday, March 2, when the documentary “Gasland: Can You Light Your Water on Fire?”

The film will be shown at 6 p.m. at the Chetco Community Public Library, 405 Alder St., Brookings. A discussion will follow the film. 

This film series, recently rescheduled and retitled First Friday Salon, was started by Brookings resident Gordon Clay and is sponsored by TheCitizensWhoCare.org. The first film in the series, Naomi Klein’s “The Shock Doctrine,” brought more than 25 people to the library, most of whom stayed for the follow-up discussion.
