Bring Your Own Book: The Game of Borrowed Phrases
Monday, June 27th at 6:00 pm
This is a game of borrowed phrases. Players take turns drawing from a deck of prompts, then race to find text to take way out of context. Use your own book (or better yet, pick out a library book) to find the best phrase, or funniest line, that fits. Can you find the most humorous “dialogue in an action movie” in a math textbook or the cleverest idea for “lyrics from a country western song” in a cozy murder mystery? For more info: www.bringyourownbook.com.
This event is free and open to the public. It will be held on the lower level of the library in the Floy Farr Room. No Registration required.
Film Screening of "Uncommon Grace:
The Life of Flannery O'Connor"
Saturday, June 29th at 2:00 pm
Despite her premature death at age 39, Flannery O’Connor left behind one of the most haunting and strikingly original bodies of work in 20th Century literature. With the rural South as her backdrop, she brought to life a string of eccentric characters torn between their worldly ambitions and the need for a more enduring truth.
This film traces the people and events that shaped her remarkable career, as well as the important role that Catholicism played in her writing. Featuring expert commentary and rare photographs, Uncommon Grace will give you a new appreciation for this highly celebrated, yet often misunderstood, storyteller. 63 minutes.
Q&A Session with Director/Producer Bridget Kurt to follow screening.
This event is free and open to the public. It will be held on the lower level of the library in Floy Farr Room.
