ent_film-reel 1:00 PM  -  4:00 PM Libray Film: Christmas in Connecticut     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Dept.   401-247-1920 x302   
   

Join librarian Doug Swiszcz as he presents one of the lesser-seen holiday films from the golden age of Hollywood.

Christmas in Connecticut - Barbara Stanwyck is Elizabeth Lane, a magazine writer who is anything but the domestic expert that she portrays herself to be in her columns. When her publisher arranges for a war-time hero to spend Christmas at her Connecticut home in the country (one that doesn't exist), Liz must act quickly to cover her tracks, or risk being fired. This heartwarming screwball comedy co-stars Dennis Morgan, Sydney Greenstreet, S.Z. "Cuddles" Sakall, Reginald Gardner, Robert Shayne, and Una O'Connor. (1945 -- black & white -- 102 minutes -- unrated).

With pre-film commentary from Doug.

Free and open to all.

lib_bookpurple 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Meet the Author Series: Doug Most     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jessica D'Avanza   401.247.1920 x312   jessicad@barringtonlibrary.org
   

Meet author Doug Most who returns to his hometown for a special visit to Barrington Public Library to speak about his book The Race Underground: Boston, New York, and the Incredible Rivalry That Built America's First Subway. 

In the late nineteenth century, as cities like Boston and New York grew more congested, the streets became clogged with plodding, horse-drawn carts. When the great blizzard of 1888 crippled the entire northeast, a solution had to be found. Two brothers from one of the nation's great families—Henry Melville Whitney of Boston and William Collins Whitney of New York—pursued the dream of his city digging America's first subway, and the great race was on. The competition between Boston and New York played out in an era not unlike our own, one of economic upheaval, life-changing innovations, class warfare, bitter political tensions, and the question of America’s place in the world.

The Week rates The Race Underground as "1 of 18 books to read in 2014." It was named a Best Book of the Month by Amazon. First published in February 2014 in hardcover. The paperback edition is scheduled to be released in February 2015.

Most grew up in Barrington and now lives in Needham, Massachusetts. He works at The Boston Globe as deputy managing editor for features.  He is the author of Always in Our Hearts: The Story of Amy Grossberg, Brian Peterson, the Pregnancy They Hid and the Child They Killed. He has written for Sports IllustratedRunner's World and Parents and his stories have appeared in Best American Crime Writing and Best American Sports Writing.

Learn more about Most at his website http://dougmost.com/.

Free and open to all.
Books will be for sale and signing at the event.
