Friday Film Festival - Rear Window

On Friday, October 18 we will watch REAR WINDOW (1954), starring Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly. The Film presents a continually growing and twisting plot revolving around different levels of Voyeurism, suspicion, and intrusion. Stewart plays an injured, bored, house ridden photographer, spying on his neighbors during a New York City heat wave. With the help of his socialite girlfriend (Grace Kelly), they stumble upon what appears to be a murder. In what begins as a curious game, they combine their efforts to resolve this increasingly dangerous Mystery.      

Facilitator Christopher Woods will introduce and lead the discussion following the film. Refreshments will be served; discussion will be led by facilitator Christopher Woods.

Cover to Cover Book Discussion: Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister

Join us for our book discussion of Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister.

Inspired by the real story of investigator Kate Warne, this spirited novel follows the detective's rise during one of the nation's times of crisis, bringing to life a fiercely independent woman whose forgotten triumphs helped sway the fate of the country.

With no money and no husband, Kate Warne finds herself with few choices. The streets of 1856 Chicago offer a desperate widow mostly trouble and ruin—unless that widow has a knack for manipulation and an unusually quick mind. In a bold move that no other woman has tried, Kate convinces the legendary Allan Pinkerton to hire her as a detective.

Battling criminals and coworkers alike, Kate immerses herself in the dangerous life of an operative, winning the right to tackle some of the agency's toughest investigations. But is the woman she's becoming—capable of any and all lies, swapping identities like dresses—the true Kate? Or has the real disguise been the good girl she always thought she was?

Cover to Cover Book Discussion: The Golden Son by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

Join us for our book discussion of The Golden Son by Shilpi Somaya Gowda.

The New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of Secret Daughter returns with an unforgettable story of family, responsibility, love, honor, tradition, and identity, in which two childhood friends—a young doctor and a newly married bride—must balance the expectations of their culture and their families with the desires of their own hearts.

Tender and bittersweet, The Golden Son illuminates the ambivalence of people caught between past and present, tradition and modernity, duty and choice; the push and pull of living in two cultures, and the painful decisions we must make to find our true selves.

Friday Film Festival - Vertigo
On Friday, November 22, we will be watching the critically acclaimed VERTIGO (1958), starring Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. From the haunting score by Bernard Herrmann, and the sultry performance by Kim Novak, VERTIGO is Hitchcock’s Masterpiece, his tour de force of direction, cinematography, casting, and story, all buttressed by an intense performance by Stewart (brilliantly playing against “type”), in what might be his best role. Stewart plays a troubled ex-cop, a victim of his own obsessions, trying to figure out if the other worldly and alluring Kim Novak is setting him up, or sadly, she is a part of a lost, past world in this eerily compelling and powerful psychological thriller.        

Facilitator Christopher Woods will introduce and lead the discussion following the film. Refreshments will be served; discussion will be led by facilitator Christopher Woods.
