Duke Libraries Wants Your Input
Classy Colleagues!
Last Day Of Classes (L.D.O.C.) is the greatest event at Duke! This year the concert will feature Travis Porter, Steve Aoki, and Kendrick Lamar! If you haven't heard of these artists, their names are linked to youtube videos of their biggest hits! Beer tasting and the tax-workshop aren't until next week, but since they are such high-priority items they are featured at the top. This week Fuqua is continuing their Green Week. The events are open to the entire student population, but RSVP is required. Remember: ALL titles are clickable and are linked to more information for each and every event! The title of this blurb is linked to a very brief survey for Duke Libraries, which is redesigning their website, and would love to have your feedback on what you like most and least about the current site. I hope everyone has an unforgettable week!
Thanks for ROCKING!!!
Chris Rowland

Cost: $12
TEENAGE PAPARAZZO documents the true story of what happens when a 14-year-old paparazzo (Austin) takes his first photo of a celebrity (Adrian Grenier)—and how the unlikely pair join forces to explore the landscape of a media-dominated, tabloid-crazed society. Real versus fake, heroes versus villains, spectators versus performers, attention, diversion and the phenomenon of an ever increasing adolescent desire for fame (for the sake of fame) are a few of the topics covered.
Adrian Grenier is best known for his starring role in the Emmy-nominated HBO series Entourage, which aired from 2004-2011. Grenier portrayed Vincent Chase, a movie star from New York navigating the unfamiliar Los Angeles scene with his childhood friends. Since making his big screen debut in 1997, Grenier has also branched out into filmmaking, producing, and directing. Grenier’s second feature-length documentary, Teenage Paparazzo, focuses on the complex relationship between celebrities and the media. The film premiered at Sundance 2010 and aired on HBO the same year.
