misc_none 4:00 PM  -  5:30 PM Scoville Film Society, Horse Feathers Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

This Marx Brothers classic revolves around college football and a game between Darwin and Huxley Colleges. (Chico) is an "iceman", who delivers ice and bootleg liquor from a local speakeasy. Pinky (Harpo) is also an "iceman", and a part-time dogcatcher. Through a series of misunderstandings, they are recruited to play on Huxley's football team.

The climax of the movie includes the four protagonists winning the football game by taking the ball into the end zone in a horse-drawn garbage wagon that Pinky rides like a chariot. (1932)

misc_none 4:00 PM  -  5:00 PM Saturday Book Club, Transatlantic by Colum McCann Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

McCann demonstrates once again why he is one of the most acclaimed and essential authors of his generation with a soaring novel that spans continents, leaps centuries, and unites a cast of deftly rendered characters, both real and imagined.

From British aviators Alcock and Brown who made the first nonstop transatlantic flight, from Newfoundland to Ireland, to Frederick Douglass on an international lecture tour in Ireland in support of his subversive autobiography,  to Senator George Mitchell  negotiating the Irish peace accord in 1998, this novel set across different times and in many different places is a tour-de-force.  McCann creates complex, vivid characters while expertly mixing fact and fancy to create this emotionally involving and eminently memorable novel.

misc_none 4:00 PM  -  5:00 PM Literature of Love and Loss: Lamenting the Dead, Tara Kelly, co-sponsored by Noble Horizons Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

To write about love, loss, death and dying is to take on big subjects; they are massive in scope, weighty in emotion, and elusive to define. Tara Kelly explores this particular niche in  the nonfiction writing of the grief memoir. She considers the works of Joan Didion, Donald Hall, C.S. Lewis,  Julian Barnes, Jamaica Kincaid, and others.

 

Tara Kelly lives in Lakeville, Connecticut. She recently earned her MFA in Literature at Bennington College. She is writing a memoir about her ex-husband, a larger than life character and local restaurateur, who after being diagnosed with liver cancer, returned to her home to spend his last four days with her and their children

Revolutionary War Revisited Series

 

Salisbury has finally acquired an example of a Revolutionary War cannon. Many people know that Salisbury produced cannon for the Revolution but not many know the details of what happened here nor have they seen a real life example of a cast iron cannon. This talk will focus on the details of the cannon we now have, the difficulty in proving its provenance and some of the details of arms production conducted in Salisbury. Weather permitting we hope to have the cannon on display for all to see.

misc_none 4:00 PM  -  5:00 PM Band of Giants The Amateur Soldiers Who Won America's Independence, Jack Kelly Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Author presentation in collaboration with Oblong Books:  the Revolutionary War Revisited Series.

Kelly brings to life the founders who fought for our independence. Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin are known to all; men like Morgan, Greene, and Wayne are less familiar.  The soldiers of the Revolution were a diverse lot: merchants and mechanics, farmers and fishermen, paragons and drunkards. Most were ardent amateurs. Even George Washington, assigned to take over the army around Boston in 1775, consulted books on military tactics. Band of Giants vividly captures the fraught condition of the war—the bitterly divided populace, the lack of supplies, the repeated setbacks on the battlefield, and the appalling physical hardships. That these inexperienced warriors could take on and defeat the superpower of the day was one of the remarkable feats in world history.

 

Jack Kelly is the author of five novels and numerous works of nonfiction.  He lives in the Hudson Valley.

 

Admission is FREE and open to the public. By purchasing a book at this event you help us continue to bring your favorite authors to Salisbury for your enjoyment.
