April 23, 2012 Jane M. DeBano
Join us in the Carnegie Auditorium Thursday evening at 6 pm for a showing of Academy Award Winner The Descendants. This R-rated film is a comedic drama about a Hawaiian land baron trying to reconnect with his teenaged daughters after his wife is badly injured in an accident. Free refreshments.
Contagion the DVD is an engrossing, totally arresting movie! Not for children, the reality and ugliness and fear of a major pandemic is terrifyingly portrayed.
The Jane Austen Book club is reading Margaret Maron this year. She's a North Carolina native whose first novel, "Bootlegger's Daughter" won every major mystery award for best first novel. That book was the first to feature Deborah Knott, whose colorful Daddy was a bootlegger. Deborah is an attorney who decides to take a stand against "mean-minded judicial pettiness" and take on the Old Boy's Club by running for a retiring judge's seat.
The first Thursday of the month is Carnegie's film group meeting. This month we are watching new release Iron Lady (PG13) with Meryl Streep. Join us in the auditorium at 6 pm for the film and refreshments.
