Victorian Christmas

Christmas Victorian style!  Diane Taraz will be here in a hoop-skirt and with all of the trimmings.  Accompanying herself on the mandolin and the parlor guitar, she will sing many Christmas carols in their original format.  (Some may sound quite different from how we know them today!)  Come and experience a taste of what Christmas was like over one hundred years ago.

Being the middle child has its ups and downs. But for Grace, an only child who was adopted at birth, discovering that she is a middle child is a different ride altogether.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Seventeen-year-old Zélie, her older brother Tzain, and rogue princess Amari fight to restore magic to the land and activate a new generation of magi, but they are ruthlessly pursued by the crown prince, who believes the return of magic will mean the end of the monarchy.

Film Movement series

Breathe
Breathe
France, 91 min.
A taut, nuanced story about the depths of female friendships and the dark side of teenage infatuations, Breathe, the sophomore directorial effort from Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Beginners), is an assured adaptation of the sensational French young adult novel of the same name. Charlie (Joséphine Japy) is seventeen and bored. Her estranged parents are too caught up in their own drama to pay her much attention. School holds no surprises either, and Charlie grows tired of her staid friends. Enter Sarah (Lou de Laâge), a confident and charismatic new transfer student who brings with her an alluring air of boldness and danger. The two form an instant connection, and through shared secrets, love interests and holiday getaways their relationship deepens to levels of unspoken intimacy. But with this intimacy comes jealousy and unrealistic expectations, and soon the teens find themselves on a dangerous trajectory toward an inevitable and unforeseen collapse.
The monthly series of foreign and independent films is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. films are not rated by the MPAA and are intended for a mature audience. Admission is free, popcorn is served, and a discussion follows the screening.

Wondrous Boccaccio
Wondrous Boccaccio
Italy, 120 min.
Set against the backdrop of a 14th century, black plague-stricken Florence, ten young men and women escape to a country estate where they spend their days telling stories of love, fate, and resurrection. From legendary Italian filmmaking brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, directors of the Palme d'Or winning Fiorile and Golden Bear award-winning Caesar Must Die, Wondrous Boccaccio is a visual and poetic tribute to the stories that emerged from one of the darkest periods in Italian history, and the imaginations that quietly fueled them.
The monthly series of foreign and independent films is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. films are not rated by the MPAA and are intended for a mature audience. Admission is free, popcorn is served, and a discussion follows the screening.

Italy, 120 min.
Set against the backdrop of a 14th century, black plague-stricken Florence, ten young men and women escape to a country estate where they spend their days telling stories of love, fate, and resurrection. From legendary Italian filmmaking brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, directors of the Palme d'Or winning Fiorile and Golden Bear award-winning Caesar Must Die, Wondrous Boccaccio is a visual and poetic tribute to the stories that emerged from one of the darkest periods in Italian history, and the imaginations that quietly fueled them.
The monthly series of foreign and independent films is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. films are not rated by the MPAA and are intended for a mature audience. Admission is free, popcorn is served, and a discussion follows the screening.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer  (title open to change)

The Renegades are human, but with extraordinary abilities. They emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone... except the villains they once overthrew. Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and is on a mission for vengeance. Adrian is a Renegade boy who believes in justice-- and in Nova. But Nova's allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Teen Book Group is a monthly book group for Grades 8-12 and facilitated by Teen Librarian Rachel Hapgood.  New members are always welcome and no sign-up is necessary.
