    NORTHFIELD — Norwich University will screen the new documentary film “Bill W.,” about Norwich alumnus and Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson, at 7 p.m. Friday in Dole Auditorium.

    According to a movie description, the film features interviews, re-creations and archival material that reveals how Wilson, who became a severe alcoholic during World War I, found a way out of his own addiction and then forged a path for others to follow.
