CommUnity Book Club--A Man Called Ove Jul 27, 2017 from 07:00 PM to 08:00 PM
Frederik Backman's international bestseller, A Man Called Ove, is an endearing tale featuring the proverbial angry-old-man-next door: in this case Ove. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell,” but behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. And so when a young family moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox, a comical and heartwarming tale begins. “If there was an award for ‘Most Charming Book of the Year,’ this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down” (Booklist). Contact the library to obtain a copy and join in the discussion.
The Hustler--Great Directors Film Series Jul 10, 2017 from 01:00 PM to 03:00 PM
We launch the 1960s portion of our Great Directors Film Series with The Hustler, starring Paul Newman as pool shark, Fast Eddie, and featuring Piper Laurie, Jackie Gleason, and George C. Scott in supporting roles. Directed by Robert Rossen, The Hustler is a gritty commentary on winning and losing, loyalty and greed, heartbreak and love. This 1961 film was nominated for nine academy awards, including best picture. It was Paul Newman's break into playing leading roles, and after a major critical and popular success, The Hustler quickly achieved the status of a modern classic. Our film starts at 1:00 PM and light snacks will be served.
