Brooks Appelbaum, Ph.D., and Dennis Bell. Rated R.

Hear the story! Please join us for an evening with Wallingford resident Steve Zafiris - author, philanthropist, family man, and businessman. Steve came to the U.S. when he was sixteen years old. The events that followed, his love of the United States, and the opportunity presented by McDonald’s Corporation, are outlined in his book God Bless America and the Golden Arches. Signed copies will be available for purchase before and after the program.
This event will kickoff our summer reading program for
adults, “Read ‘Em and Eat!” Be prepared for random prize drawings!

An unlikely World War II platoon is tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: With the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? Rated PG-13.
