All roads lead to Bette Davis in this series of films that begins with one Davis film, then circles back to another through a chain of movies featuring several other famous actors.

Mondays at 6:30 pm: April 13-May 18
  • 4/13: Dark Victory (1939)
    Davis stars with Humphrey Bogart in this tearjerker about a terminally ill socialite.
  • 4/20: Casablanca (1942)
    Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid star in this seminal WWII adventure and one of the greatest films ever made.
  • 4/27: Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939)
    Henreid appears in this classic starring Greer Garson and Robert Donat about a beloved boarding school instructor and the impact he has on his students.
  • 5/4: That Forsyte Woman (1949)
    Garson and Errol Flynn costar in this Victorian-era family drama.
  • 5/11: The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)

A celebration of reading! 

Read each selection & join staffer Michele Reinhart for a spirited discussion!  

  • April 29: The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara 

This year we mark the 150th anniversary of the end of the U.S. Civil War. At 1:30 pm on April 9, 1865, General Ulysses S. Grant accepted the surrender of General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, ending the conflict between North and South. Estimates vary as new research comes to light, but well over half a million soldiers were killed in four years of fighting. This month, reflecting on the war that pitted brother against brother, we will be reading and discussing Michael Shaara’s 1974 novel The Killer Angels.

 

The Killer Angels is a fictionalized account of the Battle of Gettysburg, the bloodiest battle in the bloodiest war in U.S. history. More than 50,000 men were killed, wounded, captured, or missing in just three days, July 1-3, 1863. 

 

Michael Shaara examines every aspect of Gettysburg and brings the commanders on both sides of the battlefield to life. We see every detail of the battle through the eyes of Brigadier General John Buford, Major General Winfield S. Hancock, and Colonel Joshua L. Chamberlain on the Union side, and General Robert E. Lee, Lieutenant General James Longstreet, and Major General George E. Pickett on the Confederate side.

 

The Killer Angels began taking shape in Michael Shaara’s mind after a family vacation to Gettysburg National Military Park in the 1960s. There, the peaceful Pennsylvania countryside yielded the ghosts and echoes of battle to the 1975 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction.

Check our catalog for available copies of the book/audiobook/ebook and join us for the discussion on the April 29.
