Saturday Movie – Aladdin

Based on a classic 1992 film that moviegoers could never get enough of, this retelling of Aladdin’s story is live action. Once again, Aladdin will have to contend with the wildest genie of all time, all while attempting to win over the princess Jasmine. In the meantime, he’ll also have to deal with the evil machinations of the wily Jafar. It’s anyone’s guess if his magic carpet will be able to save him this time.

Fall Book Club – Women Talking by Miriam Toews

Thursday, October 24, 7:00

“A major work by one of our most beloved and esteemed writers, the novel is based on real events that happened between 2005 and 2009 in a remote Mennonite community where more than 100 girls and women were drugged unconscious and raped in the night by what they were told were “ghosts” or “demons.” Women Talking is an imagined response to these real events. It takes place over 48 hours, as eight women hide in a hayloft while the men are in a nearby town posting bail for the perpetrators. They have come together to debate, on behalf of all the women and children in the community, whether to stay or leave before the men return. Taking minutes is the one man invited by the women to witness the conversation–a former outcast whose own surprising story is revealed as the women talk. By turns poignant, furious, witty, acerbic, tender, devastating, and heartbreaking, the voices in this extraordinary novel are unforgettable.”  – Provided by publisher.
