Monday Night Mysteries - Blood of the Oak: A Mystery of Revolutionary

America by Eliot Pattison Monday, Oct. 23 7 p.m. The fourth entry in the Bone Rattler series moves ever closer to the beginning of the American Revolution. “Blood of the Oak” takes a fresh view on the birth of the new nation, suggesting the “freedom” that became the centerpiece of the Revolution was uniquely American, rising not only from unprecedented political discourse but also from the extraordinary bond with the natural world.

Brown Bag Lunch Group Tuesday, Oct. 24 Noon “Girl Waits with Gun” makes excellent use of history to put a fresh spin on classic cop-and-crook types. Amy Stewart’s true-life protagonist is a rough and tumble version of the early 20th century’s new woman — witty, sharply drawn and suffering no fools.

Tuesday Matinee Tuesday, Oct. 24 1:30- 3:30 p.m. One of the highest-rated films by audiences and critics alike and selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry, Shawshank Redemption is an uplifting, deeply satisfying prison drama with sensitive direction and fine performances.
