Cinema Club Presents: The Hurt Locker

Tuesday, February 2nd at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

cover of The Hurt Locker DVDThe making of honest action movies has become so rare that Kathryn Bigelow's magnificent The Hurt Locker was shown mostly in art cinemas rather than multiplexes. That's fine; the picture is a work of art. But it also delivers more kinetic excitement, more breath-bating suspense, more putting-you-right-there in the danger zone than any mall movie. Rated R.

Discussion to follow movie. Refreshments will be served.

Book Discussion: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Wednesday, February 10th at 3:30 p.m. in the Collins Room

In 1816 Mary Shelley decided to create a story that in her own words, “would speak to the mysterious fear of our nature and awaken thrilling horror – one to make the reader dread to look round, to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart.” Judging from the multiple film adaptations, books in print, and permanent place in popular culture, she succeeded!

The discussion will be led by Marsha Bansavage, discussion facilitator for the Connecticut Humanities Council.

All are welcome and copies of the book are available from the library’s Information Desk. This discussion of the novel Frankenstein concludes our four-part discussion series on the “Range of Realism.”co-sponsored by the Connecticut Humanities Council and made possible by the Faustman Fund.
