Charles Laughton Film Series: "The Barretts of Wimpole Street"

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 1:30pm to 4:00pm

Tortured but brilliant, Oscar-winner Charles Laughton (1899-1962) was one of the most recognizable and talented actors of his time. Since his portly figure and decidedly unhandsome face meant that leading-man roles were not open to him, Laughton carved a career out of playing a variety of monsters and misfits in films like "The Private Life of Henry VIII" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."

What's Cooking?

Sunday, July 12, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and ask you to make it at home; you choose the second and bring it to our discussion to share. We'll meet to discuss both recipes and to sample the one you chose. We'll have a potluck of tasty treats!

This month's selection is "Jerusalem" by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, and our recipe choice is Mejadra. Copies of the book are available at Maze Branch Library one month prior to the event.
