Cinema Club Presents: Doubt

Tuesday, July 7th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the rigid and fear-inspiring principal of the Saint Nicholas Church School, suffers an extreme dislike for the progressive and popular parish priest Father Flynn.

But without proof, the only thing certain is doubt. Rated: PG-13

Thursday Night Book Club: Away by Amy Bloom

Thursday, June 18th at 7:00 p.m. in the Collins Room

Panoramic in scope, Away is the epic and intimate story of young Lillian Leyb, an accidental heroine. All of the qualities readers love in Amy Bloom's work-her humor and the human heart-come together in this brilliant novel, which is at once heartbreaking, romantic, and completely unforgettable. Copies of the book are available from our catalog.

Our Thursday Night Book Club is an informal gathering for fans of fiction and popular nonfiction. Each month a book is selected for group discussion and all are welcome to share their thoughts about authors, writing styles, plots, and themes. It's all about the book; however light refreshments are offered!
