North Branch Book Group: Stoner by John Williams

titleThursday, August 28, 7 pm, North Branch 

William Stoner is born at the end of the nineteenth century into a dirt-poor Missouri farming family. Sent to the state university to study agronomy, he instead falls in love with English literature and embraces a scholar’s life, so different from the hardscrabble existence he has known. John Williams’s luminous and deeply moving novel is a work of quiet perfection. Join us for our discussion on August 28th.  Because the branch is currently closed for bathroom remodeling, copies of the book are available at the main library circulation desk under the name North Branch Book Group for those who will be attending the discussion. Please register for an email reminder.

WWI Commemoration Film: Hell's Angels

altThursday, September 11, 6 pm, North Branch

Two brothers attending Oxford enlist with the RAF when World War I breaks out. Roy and Monte Rutledge have very different personalities. Monte is a freewheeling womanizer, even with his brother's girlfriend Helen. He also proves to have a yellow streak when it comes to his Night Patrol duties. Roy is made of strong moral fiber and attempts to keep his brother in line. Both volunteer for an extremely risky two man bombing mission for different reasons. Monte wants to lose his cowardly reputation and Roy seeks to protect his brother. Their assignment to knock out a strategic German munitions facility is a booming success, but with a squadron of fighters bearing down on them afterwards, escape seems unlikely.  Hell's Angels. (DVD 2004).
