Alice's Ordinary People: Film Showing and Discussion with Filmmaker Craig Dudnick
1:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Though national leaders of the Civil Rights Movement may loom large, the everyday activists working at the ground level were no less important. Alice Tregay and other members of the Chicago Freedom Movement played an integral role in the national struggle for Civil Rights. And though they may not appear in many history textbooks, their accomplishments changed the course of American history.

Join us to view "Alice's Ordinary People," a documentary by filmmaker Craig Dudnick that details the extraordinary things that can be accomplished through grassroots community activism. Craig Dudnick will also be present to discuss the film and the way that ordinary activists influenced the course of history during the struggle for equality in the 1960s.

Spring Series: The World Down Under

Australia is a fascinating, mysterious, yet familiar country.  As an English-speaking, developed nation in the British Commonwealth, it is a sister nation to ours.  However, its vastly different history, landscape, wildlife, and attitudes make it a very alien country that draws our interest and deserves our attention.

The Secret River by Kate Grenville

In 1806 William Thornhill, an illiterate English bargeman steals a load of wood and is deported to the New South Wales colony in what would become Australia. This sweeping historical novel is the story of his deep love for the small, exotic corner of his new world, and his gradual realization that if he wants to make a home for his family, he must forcibly take the land from the people who came before him.

This month we will be discussing CELINE by Peter Heller

About the book:

A luminous, spine-tingling novel of suspense -- the story of Celine, an elegant, aristocratic private eye who specializes in reuniting families, trying to make amends for a loss in her own past.  Working out of her jewel box of an apartment at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, Celine has made a career of tracking down missing persons, and she has a better record at it than the FBI.  But when a young woman, Gabriela, asks for her help, a world of mystery and sorrow opens up.

Books are available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to this meeting.

About the book:

Stretching from the tribal wars of Ghana to slavery and Civil War in America, from the coal mines in the north to the Great Migration to the streets of 20th century Harlem, Yaa Gyasi has written a modern masterpiece, a novel that moves through histories and geopgraphies and -- with outstanding economy and force -- captures the troubled spirit of our own nation.

Books are available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to this meeting.

New members are always welcome!  Refreshements will be served.

In A Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

Here is Bill Bryson’s report on what he found in Australia, the country that doubles as a continent, and a place with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. The result is a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity.
