Adam's Rib--Great Directors Film Series Feb 13, 2017 from 01:00 PM to 03:00 PM
Adam's Rib (1949) is one of director George Cukor's most famous comedies. This battle of the sexes is between two married lawyers, famously played by Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. The film's writers were the real life husband-and-wife team, Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin; their screenplay earned them an Academy Award nomination. Also starring Judy Holliday and Tom Ewell, this scintillating post-war comedy is considered to have been years ahead of its time. We will begin the film at 1:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served.

Long retired, Sherlock Holmes quietly pursues his study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. He never imagines he would encounter anyone whose intellect matched his own, much less an audacious teenage girl with a penchant for detection.

CommUnity Book Club--Where'd You Go Bernadette? Jan 26, 2017 from 07:00 PM to 08:00 PM
Where'd You Go Bernadette? is an award winning young adult novel by Maria Semple. Fifteen-year-old Bee's mother, Bernadette, disappears just as they were supposed to be making plans for a family trip to Antarctica. Bee begins a touchingly thorough, as well as hilarious, investigation into her mother's whereabouts. "The tightly constructed Where'd You Go Bernadette? is written in many formats---e-mails, letters, F.B.I. documents, correspondence with a psychiatrist and even an emergency-room bill......Yet these pieces are strung together so wittily that Ms. Semple's storytelling is always front and center, in sharp focus." (The New York Times) Contact the library to obtain a copy of this book and join in the discussion.
