Movie: For a Woman
Friday, May 01, 2015
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The year is 1991 and filmmaker Anne (Sylvie Testud) struggles against the wishes of her older sister Tania (Julie Ferrier) to grasp the circumstances surrounding their Ukrainian-born parents' split in the years after surviving the same prison camp during World War II. After their mother's death, Anne and her sister discover a cache of old photos and letters that lead them to unravel their parents' tangled relationship with a mysterious uncle. This film, written and directed Diane Kurys, who is best known for her 1983 breakthrough Entre Nous, tells a story fraught with both romantic and political intrigue.

Book to Film: Wild
Friday, May 15, 2015
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Showing of the film Wild, based on the memoir written by Cheryl Strayed. Read the book and then see how it's interpreted and adapted for the screen. A short discussion will follow the film.

Book to film discussion with Evelyn Hershkowitz, Readers' Services Librarian. Books will be available at the Circulation Desk one month before the program.

 

Driven to the edge by the loss of her beloved mother (Laura Dern), the dissolution of her marriage and a headlong dive into self-destructive behavior, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) makes a decision to halt her downward spiral and put her life back together again. With no outdoors experience, a heavy backpack and little else to go on but her own will, Cheryl sets out alone to hike the Pacific Crest Trail -- one of the country's longest and toughest through-trails.

        Quotes About Libraries

        We cannot have good libraries until we first have good librarians-properly educated, professionally recognized, and fairly rewarded.
