Springfield resident hopes Kenyan heritage will bring people together

A local documentary filmmaker and musician is sharing his story.

Patrick Mureithi lives in Springfield. He came to the area from Kenya and is showing excerpts from his documentaries and songs from his album.

"There's a lot to build a sense of community, for folks in the audience to identify with the music and with each other. I've always left feeling more edified and more connected. I'm just grateful that the library provides a space for the community to get together and for people to share their talents," he said.

Monday the Library Center hosts a Civil War book discussion group at 7 p.m. You’re invited to bring your favorite Civil War book.
