Tuesday, April 7 @ 10:30 a.m.
April’s Book Talk which will introduce “Havana Nocturne: How the Mob Owned Cuba…and Then Lost It to the Revolution” by T.J. English. According to Tim Miller of the “Washington Post Book World,” “”Havana Nocturne” has the air of a thriller with the bonus of being true…English’s well-researched descriptions of how business, gambling, politics, revolution, music and religion all played off each other give it a broad context and knowledgeable edge”. Led by Mary Behnke, it is not necessary to read the book prior to the program or register in advance.
“The Hundred-Foot Journey”
Spring Film Series
Sunday, April 12 @ 3:00 p.m.
In a village in France, there’s a quintessentially French Michelin star-rated restaurant, owned by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren). A refugee Indian family arrives in the village, and Papa Kadam (veteran Indian actor Om Puri) and his son Hasan (Manish Dayal) open the “Maison Mumbai” restaurant across the road. The imperious Madame Mallory does not take kindly the arrival of these upstart foreigners, and in no time at all it’s war between Papa Kadam and Madame Mallory. An engaging film with a marvelous cast, a gifted director (Lasse Hallstrom – Chocolat), lush cinematography, and A.R. Rahman’s mood-setting musical score. Rated PG for thematic elements, some violence, language and brief sensuality. 122 minutes.
