The second annual Compassion Fest (film festival, fair, and symposium) is presenting a screening of the movie Wonder one night only at The Community Hall in the Third Street Center in Carbondale on Thursday, April 18, at 6:30 p.m. The film is offered on a donation basis as a fundraiser for the 2019 Compassion Fest taking place August 9-11, also at the Third Street Center.
