Program Description

Event Details

Please join us for this new bimonthly series wherein we will watch films about humans, since all great stories involve great characters, and then we'll discuss them with our fellow humans.

The movies are available on DVD from the library collection or via Kanopy streaming service.  You can watch the movie at the library with us on June 30th, or watch it on your own in advance and then attend the discussion (that will take place after the screening) with your fellow humans, facilitated by library instructors. 

June 30   The French Dispatch   (Rated R; this title is available via DVD in the library collection)

The French Dispatch is an American magazine being published in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé. When its editor-in-chief, Arthur Howitzer Jr. dies, the staff decides to publish one last edition, highlighting the best stories to come out of the magazine over its 10-year run. These stories involve Moses Rosenthaler, an artist jailed for double homicide; a kidnapping solved by Lieutenant Nescafier, a chef and police officer; and student riots.


For questions, please email or Screening location will alternate between the East Columbia and Elkridge Branches throughout this series.
