    Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they're all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow "runners" for a shot at escape. Rated PG-13.

    *Since we had to rescedule this showing due to last week's snowstorm, please note this film begins at 11:30am NOT 2pm. Consequently, breakfast will be served.

    Photographer and author Francesco Mastalia will discuss his new book, ORGANIC: Farmers and Chefs of the Hudson Valley.  It features dedicated farmers committed to growing and producing food using sustainable methods, and chefs who echo their beliefs and pay homage to the food they produce.  The portraits were photographed using the wet plate collodion process, a technique developed in the mid-19th century when photography was in its infancy.

    The success of last year's Marble Fiction Project, as well as frequent requests, has inspired us to once again put a call out to all aspiring writers to set pen to paper!  This year's prompt, Letters to..., is a foray into the world of epistolary novels.  This style of fiction first gained popularity in the 17th and 18th centuries, and is a form in which most or all of the plot is advanced by the letters or journal entries of one or more characters.

    Please join us at the information session to pick up your notebook.

    Some examples of epistolary novels are:

    The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

    Dracula by Bram Stoker

    Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding

    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

    A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

    Uncommon Valour by John Stevens

    Griffin and Sabine by Nick Bantock

    The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga (winner of the Man Booker prize 2008)
