Summer Film Series

Based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail”, this film chronicles one woman’s 1,100-mile solo hike. Starring Reese Witherspoon in an Oscar-nominated performance as Cheryl, the movie is full of beautiful scenes throughout the Pacific Northwest. Through flashbacks, we learn of Cheryl’s mother’s death, her nasty divorce, and her reckless sex and drug abuse that lead her to make the trek. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallee, this is a soulful journey of discovery and healing. Oscar-nominated – Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. Rated R for sexual content, nudity, drug use, and language. 115 minutes.
Tuesday, June 30, 7:00 p.m.
Cynthia Neale’s “Pavlova in a Hat Box, Sweet Memories and Desserts” is a collection of stories and meditations that have been wrested from a country childhood and a writing life. Margaret M. Johnson describes the book as “a love letter disguised as a cookbook! Filled with heart-warming memories of her mother and her delicious confections”. Accompanying these vignettes are classic and new sumptuous dessert recipes redolent of the comfort of old-fashioned fare, but with an organic twist. Cynthia will speak about writing, her recipes and will also bring samples of her desserts to share! Her books will also be available for sale.
