The Penn Bookstore will welcome director and filmmaker Spike Lee at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, to sign copies of his newly released DVD, Miracle at St. Anna. The signing will be held on the second floor in the Bookstore’s multi-media event space.

Based on the highly praised novel of the same name, by James McBride, which explores both the tragedy and triumph of war, Miracle at St. Anna, is a gripping and inspiring story that will touch the goodness within all people. The story chronicles four members of the US. Army’s all-black 92nd Infantry Division stationed in Tuscany, Italy, who are trapped behind enemy lines after one of them risks his life to save a traumatized village.

Mr. Lee is an award-winning director and filmmaker. Recent films include Clockers, Bamboozled and The Inside Man. He is also a two-time Oscar nominee and the recipient of the 2006 Black Movie Award and the 2007 Black Reel Award for Best Director of Inside Man.
