Join us in this month's book club by reading The Round House by Louise Erdrich. One Sunday in the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked. The details of the crime are slow to surface as Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to relive or reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and thirteen-year-old son, Joe. In one day, Joe's life is irrevocably transformed. Reserve it!
Tuesday, September 9 @ 5:30pm
(PG13) In this inspired, genre-twisting film, Oscar-nominated writer/director, Sarah Polley, discovers that the truth depends on who's telling it. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets behind a family of storytellers. She playfully interviews and interrogates a cast of characters of varying reliability, eliciting refreshingly candid, yet mostly contradictory, answers to the same questions. Call the library at 209-3730 for movie title.
