Guy Trilby is a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of the Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition.

Elizabeth Rosner

Meet the Schenctady native and author of The Speed of Light, Blue Nude and soon-to-be released, Electric City and Gravity

Elizabeth Rosner grew up in Schenectady, New York as a daughter of Jewish holocaust survivors. Her father, who was born in Hamburg, Germany, was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp, while her mother survived the war by hiding in the Polish countryside. Much of Ms. Rosner’s writing reflects her efforts to come to terms with the impact of her parents’ experiences on her own life, the indelible imprints of their history on her language, her identity, and her imagination. 

“Electric City is a vital, pulsing, epic novel of America, of its great scientific ingenuity and its emotional ambition; one that frames the birth and evolution of its towns against the struggles of its indigenous tribes, the immigrant experience, a country divided, and the technological advancements that ushered in the modern world.”

Gravity is a full-length collection of poetry that can be read as an autobiographical companion to her novels. These prize-winning poems offer insight into the author’s background and reveal many of the inspirations for The Speed of Light, Blue Nude and Electric City. ~www.elizabethrosner.com

A book sale and signing, conducted by The Open Door Bookstore, will follow the program. They will be offering a 20% discount on Electric city and Gravity. To order your copy, call the store at 518.346.2719.

Million Dollar Arm          

Jon Hamm, Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Aasif Mandvi, Suraj Sharma, Madhur Mittal, Lake Bell.Disney; Directed by Craig Gillespie; Rated PG; 124 minutes; 2014

JB Bernstein is a once-successful sports agent who may have to close his business. To save it, he comes up with an idea so radical it just might work. Setting off for Mumbai, JB stages a televised nationwide competition called 'Million Dollar Arm' where two young finalists emerge as winners. JB brings them back to the US with a goal: get them signed as pitchers to a major league team. While the boys learn the game, they teach JB the meaning of teamwork and commitment, and JB finds a family.

Maleficent Maleficent           

Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Lesley Manville, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Sam Riley.Disney; Directed by Robert Stromberg; Rated PG; 96 minutes; 2014

A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom, and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well.
