     These events also will be presented on campus the week of July 29:

  • François Truffaut's "Fahrenheit 451" (1966) will screen Tuesday and Thursday at noon and 7 p.m. in Davies Theatre.
         For his first film in color and in English, Truffaut chose Ray Bradbury's classic study of a totalitarian world in the not-distant future, where the possession or reading of books is prohibited.
  • UW-Eau Claire and area jazz musicians will perform from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Central Campus Mall (rain site: The Cabin, Davies Center). 

     Funded by UW-Eau Claire student segregated fees, the Summer Session Programs series is sponsored annually by the Activities and Programs office.
