Teens entering grades 7-12 are invited to attend a double feature based on popular young adult novels. In the first film, a community of boys find themselves trapped in a glade at the center of a giant maze. They soon discover they must join forces for a shot at escape. In the second film, after her father unexpectedly dies, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, who reduce her to scullery maid. Despite her circumstances, she refuses to despair. An invitation to a palace ball gives Ella hope that she might reunite with the dashing stranger she met in the woods, but her stepmother prevents her from going. Help arrives in the form of a kindly beggar woman who has a magic touch for ordinary things. The free double showing will be held Saturday, October 24 at 12 p.m. in the Library’s Crawford Room. Call 577-READ ext. 101 for the movie titles (both films rated PG-13).
