Beatriz at Dinner is a 2017 comedy-drama film directed by Miguel Arteta from a screenplay by Mike White. It stars Salma Hayek, John Lithgow, Connie Britton, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker, Chloë Sevigny and David Warshofsky.

When socioeconomic classes collide, lots of interesting hijinks can ensue. And when Beatriz's car breaks down, she has absolutely no idea just how intriguing her evening is about to become. As a holistic medical professional, she is more attuned to world around her than most. However, it could be said that her clients are a bit removed from the troubles most ordinary people face. An ordinary dinner party becomes so much more when the friends of Beatriz's wealthy client are forced to face real issues in the world.

Rated R, 83 minutes.

Creative Nonfiction: Writing and Publishing Your Essay

Join us for a creative nonfiction workshop that intentionally combines different forms of the genre—personal essays, travelogues, biographies—and encourages exploration in the genre. Participants will examine and discuss short 1-page essays, as well as receiving feedback on their personal essays. There will be also be some discussion on finding an agent and publisher, giving a reading, and surviving as a writer in the world.


An innovative essayist (Halls of Fame, 2001) and dynamic anthologist, (The Lost Origins of the Essay, 2009) John D’Agata is the author of Halls of Fame, About a Mountain, and The Lifespan of a Fact, as well as the editor of the 3-volume series, A New History of the Essay, which includes the anthologies The Next American Essay, The Making of the American Essay, and The Lost Origins of the Essay. His work has been supported by a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Howard Foundation Fellowship, an NEA Literature Fellowship, and a Lannan Foundation Fellowship. He holds a B.A. from Hobart College and two M.F.A.s from the University of Iowa, and recently his essays have appeared in The Believer, Harper's, Gulf Coast, and Conjunctions. John D’Agata lives in Iowa City with a dog named Boeing, and he teaches creative writing at the University of Iowa where he directs the graduate Nonfiction Writing Program.

“D’Agata . . . has spent the last 15 years trying to use the essay as Defoe used the novel: to get out of the impasse over what’s real and what’s not, and to solve the anxiety over the veracity of the media we consume, this time by foregrounding that anxiety itself, and asking us to confront it head on. His trilogy, A New History of the Essay, is a thoughtful alternative road map to how we might think of the essay and its role in the current moment.”—Los Angeles Times

“John D’Agata is a champion of the essay, a crusader for lost forms, a defender of nonfiction as an art. . . His project—that of reshaping the genre of creative nonfiction—is a bold one, and in these anthologies, the [essay] becomes a spiritual vessel, a portal to deeper truths.”—Iowa Review

“Quixotic … ambitious….What D’Agata has in mind, on one level, is to push the conversation, to throw a thought-bomb into the center of the room.”—Lit Hub

“John D’Agata is a groundbreaking literary activist. It is due to him and these anthologies that the most exciting writing today is happening in the realm of nonfiction, in particularly the realm of the essay, which he has, near-single-handedly, rescued from the literary dustbin and turned into a vital contemporary art form. A New History of the Essay is essential reading for anyone interested in the future of nonfiction.”—Heidi Julavits

The Point

Mindy Todd and Jill Erickson (Head of Reference & Adult Services) on WCAI with their book suggestions!  We are joined this month by Vicki Titcomb of Titcomb’s Bookshop in East Sandwich. This will be a holiday giving show, including books about making things as gifts, great books about holidays, and books you might want to give for presents. This show will be pre-recorded, so we will not be taking telphone calls. Repeated at 7:00 PM or listen online at www.capeandislands.org.
