To kick off our year-long series of heavenly events, dedicated to the memory of Gailanne Cariddi, we will be showing the 1977 science-fiction classic “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”. Showtime is set for 6 p.m. January 18 in the community room on the 3rd floor of the library. Written by Steven Spielberg, the film stars Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Gar and Francoise Truffuant among others. Designated as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”, the film entered the National Film Registry in 2007. Our digitally remastered copy is available for public viewing through Movie Licensing USA.
Popcorn will be served.
Local artist and health enthusiast, Kathy Carbin will be facilitating a new book club that examines the relationship between diet and health. Titled “What am I Going to Eat?”, the group will meet on the last Wednesday in January and February at 2 p.m. at the library. Over the next several months the group will discuss some of the latest books on creating a healthy eating plan with foods that taste good, make you feel good and prevent disease. The first book to be discussed will be “In Defense of Food” by Michael Pollan, an entertaining primer on the unhealthy American diet. The second book in the series will be “The Paleo Cure” by Chris Kresser. Books will be available at the library.
