February Programs and Events
Silver Linings Playbook: February 5th at 6:30
Adults. Read the book, then come watch the movie. Movie style refreshments will be served. The movie will be followed by a group discussion.
From Amazon.com:An enchanting first novel about love, madness, and Kenny G. In this brilliantly written debut novel, Matthew Quick takes us inside Pat’s mind, deftly showing us the world from his distorted yet endearing perspective. The result is a touching and funny story that helps us look at both depression and love in a wonderfully refreshing way.
