December Programs for ages 18 and up
Tuesday December 14 - Foreign Film Classics at 6:30pm - We'll be watching La Regle du Jeu/The Rules of the Game, a 1939 French satirical comedy-drama film directed by Jean Renoir. Renoir's career in France was at its pinnacle in 1939 and The Rules of the Game was the most expensive film produced in France when it was released. Roger Ebert said the film "is so simple and so labyrinthine, so guileless and so angry, so innocent and so dangerous, that you can't simple watch it, you have to absorb it." No registration is necessary.
Wednesday December 15 - South Windsor Library Unraveled at 7:00pm via ZOOM - Please join us for a monthly evening of knitting, crocheting, spinning, sewing and book discussing! This month we'll be discussing The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab.  Please call 860-644-1541 or email knoonan@libraryconnection.info to register with your email address so we can send you the ZOOM invitation. You don't need to read the book to attend.
Thursday December 16 - Heroes of the Early 20th Century - From Page to Screen at 2:00pm. We will be watching the 1953 movie, Shane, directed by George Stevens and based on the 1949 novel by Jack Schaefer. The movie stars Alan Ladd, Jean Arthur and Van Heflin. This film is listed in the 2007 edition of AFI's 110 years...100 movies list and is also listed in the AFI's Top 10 Western movies. Shane was nominated for 6 Academy Awards. No registration is necessary.
