Book Discussion: “Moon Tiger”
Sep 8 @ 6:30 pm

A discussion of the novel “Moon Tiger” by Penelope Lively will be held at the Natrona County Public Library at 6:30 p.m., Monday, September 8.  Summary: The elderly Claudia Hampton, a best-selling author of popular history; lies alone in a London hospital bed. Memories of her life still glow in her fading consciousness, but she imagines writing a history of the world. Instead, Moon Tiger is her own history, the life of a strong, independent woman, with its often contentious relations with family and friends. At its center - forever frozen in time, the still point of her turning world - is the cruelly truncated affair with Tom, a British tank commander whom Claudia knew as a reporter in Egypt during World War II.

To participate, pick up a copy of the book at the 2nd floor Reference desk (while supplies last), then join the group for discussion.  NCPL Book Discussion groups meet monthly and new members are always welcome.  Please call 577-READ (7323) for more information.

Indie Film Series: “Watchtower”
Sep 16 @ 6:30 pm

The Natrona County Public Library’s Independent Film Series will feature “Watchtower” Tuesday, September 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Crawford Room.  Summary: Haunted by a tragic incident, Nihat isolates himself as the fire warden of a remote forest observation tower.  To distance herself from her own traumatic past, Seher takes a similarly solitary job as a hostess at a rural bus station in the region.  Each goes about their secluded existence until their fates collide at a crossroads.  Reluctantly choosing companionship over isolation, the pair develops a tender, if uneven, domestic partnership as they settle into Nihat’s mountainside watchtower.  Their proximity serves as the ultimate catalyst, allowing each to redevelop a compassion in their lives they’d long since lost.

The screening will be followed by a discussion and refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library.  All films shown during the Independent Film Series are unrated and may be unsuitable for children.  Call 577-READ (7323) ext. 2 for more information.

World War I Centennial Film Series: Film 1
Sep 18 @ 6:30 pm

A century ago, Europe naively marched into the First World War.  Wholesale slaughter would crush ideals in basic human decency for generations to come.  The merciless consumption of an entire generation inspired numerous filmmakers to seek some explanations for the overwhelming carnage.

To help mark this historic centennial, the Natrona County Public Library will show a series of classic films that vividly illuminate many of the conflicts that drove the First World War. Tom Smyth, historian and frequent instructor of OLLI classes at Casper College, will provide a brief description of the historical setting of each film and host Q&A sessions afterwards.

Screenings will be held Thursday, September 18, Thursday, September 25, Tuesday, September 30 and Wednesday, October 1 – the last two showings are of two parts of the same film.  Each session will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Crawford Room.  All are free and open to the public, no registration necessary.  For film titles or additional details stop by your public library or call 577-READ.
