Cinema Club Meets Thursday, Oct. 28

The second hybrid meeting  of our new Cinema Club will take place on Thursday, Oct 28 at 6 pm with the showing of a short film, The Stooge,  followed by discussion.  The film’s director, Rogelio Fojo, will be at the Quechee Library to answer questions and to discuss this film about magic and identity.  Next month will be a return to a film available to patrons through Kanopy, but this is too interesting an opportunity to pass up for October.

Historical Fiction Discussion: Tuesday, Nov. 9, 4 pm

The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles will be the book for the next  historical fiction discussion. Facilitated by Jim and Meg Schmidt via Zoom, the series delves into the historical background and the novelist’s craft of a new title each month. This novel, set on the eve of WWII,  tells the story of Odile Souchet. As the Nazis march into Paris she stands to lose everything she holds dear, including her beloved library. She joins the resistance, but when the war ends, instead of freedom, Odile tastes the bitter sting of unspeakable betrayal.  Email to receive the Zoom link or reserve a spot downstairs for our hybrid discussion. Copies are available for borrowing.
