The Scorpio Races is getting a lot of attention lately--deservedly. A friend described it as atmospheric, and she is so right. It has atmosphere, adventure, thrills, humor and more! Set on an island that, one infers, is somewhere near the British Isles, the island, Thisby, occupies as large a part of the book as any of the characters.
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 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.
A pleasant surprise--a book that isn't from any of my favorite genres, and I still really liked it! South of Superior is set in the fictional UP town of McAllaster, along Superior's shore. Knowing that the author lives in Grand Marais and runs the charming West Bay Diner gives the book more credibility and really reinforces the authenticity.
Carnegie has a film group which meets the first Thursday of every month at 6 pm to watch new releases in the recently remodeled auditorium. Refreshments provided. Join us April 5th for The Descendants starring George Clooney!
