04/24/19 Movie Saturday!

One of our book club members brought in the movie "If Beale Street Could Talk" and you are invited to come and watch it this Saturday morning, April 27th, at 9am here at the library in the reading room. It won an Academy Award and also a Golden Globe award for best performance by an actress in a supporting role. The story is about Tish and Alonzo, young African Americans in Harlem, in the 1970s, and in love. This is the story of their relationship, and the challenges it faces during the era. Bring your coffee or drink, and enjoy a movie and a bit of discussion afterwards


We will be discussing the book “A Piece of the World” by Christina Baker Kline this Thursday at 6pm in the meeting room.  To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family’s remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than twenty years, she was host and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth, and became the subject of one of the best known American paintings of the twentieth century. Come join in the discussion and share an hour of comradery with other book lovers!
