Coming Society Events  

Book Group
Sunday, July 9, 12:15pm

We will discuss Martha Hall Kelly’s "Lilac Girls," a work of historical fiction based on a true story of a New York socialite who championed justice for a group of women survivors of the Nazi concentration camp Ravensbruck.


Film Discussion Group
Monday, July  10,  7:15pm

We'll discuss these current films:

"My Cousin Rachel" - This dark romance tells the story of a young Englishman (Sam Claflin) who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin (Rachel Weisz), believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

"Beatriz At Dinner" - Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Los Angeles. Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.

"A Quiet Passion" is a backup, in case the above films leave the theaters early.
