Open enrollment: Registration not limited to Warwick cardholders.

What is living in the woods?  How do you know what is there?   Frequently when hiking, we come upon crumbling stone walls, wells, trash heaps, fruit trees, and other evidence of former inhabitants but most of us do not realize what we are looking at.  This program will show how to differentiate between the works of man and the works of nature.

A modern classic, Housekeeping is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, their eccentric and remote aunt. The family house is in the small Far West town of Fingerbone set on a glacial lake, the same lake where their grandfather died in a spectacular train wreck, and their mother drove off a cliff to her death.
