This Day in History

If you're a fan of the movie Apocalypse Now, you may not be aware that this classic film was inspired by an even more well-known novella (short novel). Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness is a famous work that was inspired by the author's real-life nautical experiences. Celebrate the anniversary of Conrad's birth today by picking up some materials at the NCC Libraries!
