Dearborn’s Centennial Library Hosts March 26 Screening For ‘Sesame Street’ Primetime Special
March 12th, 2009


Dearborn has been selected as one of a handful of communities in the U.S. to host a special pre-screening event for family members of persons serving in the military of a national PBS primetime special that focuses on helping children of wounded service persons and features Queen Latifah, John Mayer and Sesame Street’s Elmo.

Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, has produced — in association with David Letterman’s production company, Worldwide Pants Inc., and Lookalike Productions — the 30-minute PBS special. It’s called Coming Home: Military Families Cope With Change.

The free pre-screening will take place at Dearborn’s Henry Ford Centennial Library on Thursday, March 26, at 6:30 p.m. A second screening will take place at 7:30 p.m.The Henry Ford Centennial Library is located at 16301 Michigan Avenue west of Greenfield Road in Dearborn.

Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to reserve seats by sending an email to: cominghomedearborn@gmail.com .

Coming Home tells the story of service members who return home with injuries, visible and invisible, and explores the heroic struggles their families face in discovering ways of finding a “new normal.” The special salutes the extraordinary courage and strength of these military families and offers the general public a powerful glimpse into the lives of these amazing families.

The program will air nationwide on PBS on Wednesday, April 1, at 8 p.m. (check local listings) in conjunction with April as National Month of the Military Child.

“Coming Home is a fantastic opportunity for us to bring awareness to the struggles facing service members with combat-related injuries, and the problems their families face while coping with their ‘New Normal’. We hope that ‘Coming Home,’ will provide opportunities for the community to reach out to our Hometown Heroes and their families. We are proud to partner with the City of Dearborn and the Michigan Military Moms to bring you this screening,” said Gary Tanner, Reconnect Chairman, American Legion Department of Michigan.
