Let's Talk Pictures!

Are you one of the many who has enjoyed Susan Benjamin's rollicking music programs at the library? If so, please join Susan for Talking Pictures, a film and discussion series. Every month, Susan will show a film, with a lively discussion to follow. The next film in the series (not listed in Excerpts) is Little Miss Sunshine, starring Greg Kinnear, Steve Carell and Toni Collette. It will be shown at the library on Tuesday, August 19th at 1:00PM with discussion immediately following. Because the program will last more than 2 hours, you may want to park in the Metra commuter lot or other long term parking spot. We hope to see you there!
