As part of the Adult Summer Reading Program’s Self Help Week, the Friday Night Movie for Adults will be “Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story”.  Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. stars as the renowned brain surgeon, Ben Carson, who overcame tremendous obstacles and changed the course of medicine forever. Growing up in great poverty in Detroit, Michigan, Ben Carson didn't have much of a chance. A product of a broken home he overcame poverty and prejudice. His determined mother insisted he pursue the opportunities she never had, she helped to grow his imagination, intelligence and, most importantly, his belief in himself. That faith would be his gift - the thing that would drive him to become one of the world's leading neurosurgeons.
