"O Brother, Where Art Thou?" presented by 1st Friday Film Series

Friday Sep 5, 2014, 7:30 p.m.

Film strip

Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month.

Free and open to public.

What do you get when you cross The Odyssey, the Deep South, the Great Depression and The Three Stooges…? Well, you get another madcap Coen Brothers movie, of course — one that also launched the year’s best soundtrack! It’s O BROTHER, WHERE ARE THOU? (2001)

This shaggy, roller-coaster ride (very) loosely based on Homer’s epic poem starring George Clooney (here a Clark Gable doppelgänger), John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson, John Goodman, Holly Hunter and the late Charles Durning. As with all Coen Brothers movies, O Brother Where Art Thou is brilliantly written, acted, and directed. And it’s hilarious.

"The Crooked Branch", Book Talk by Local Author, Jeanine Cummins

Sunday Sep 14, 2014, 1 p.m.

On Sunday, Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. best-selling local author, Jeanine Cummins, will present a book talk on her novel, The Crooked Branch, described by Booklist as, “Wonderfully written, with strong, compelling characters, it is a deeply satisfying combination of sweeping historical saga and modern family drama, a gentle reminder of the ever-reaching influence of family.”

Jeanine studied creative writing at Towson University, before living in Belfast for several years. In 1997, Jeanine moved to New York City, where she spent ten years working in the publishing industry before she turned to writing full time.

Jeanine's fiction is deeply influenced by Ireland, where both her novels are set. Her stories draw on her Irish and Puerto Rican heritage, and the blend is uniquely American.
