The Library will host the film premier of Notes On A Napkin, a series of comedic shorts looking at life and love. A Knuckle Sandwich production, the film was written and directed by former Wallingford resident and Sheehan High School graduate, Matt Saccullo, founder of Knuckle Sandwich Productions. The shorts originated as comical thoughts that Saccullo encountered while working as a waiter in a New York City diner. In addition to writing, producing, and directing, Saccullo is also an actor and appears in Notes On A Napkin. His acting credits have been featured at the Tribeca Film Festival and in the Channel 101 festival. A trailer of the film can be viewed online at YouTube.
