A celebration of reading!

  • January 28: Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie

India gained its independence from the United Kingdom on August 15, 1947 and became a republic on January 26, 1950, when its constitution went into effect. In honor of Republic Day, this month we will be reading and discussing a modern classic of Indian literature, Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie.

Published in 1981, Midnight’s Children won the Booker Prize that year and was later awarded two celebratory Bookers: the Booker of Bookers, awarded in 1993 in honor of the Booker’s 25th anniversary; and the Best of the Booker, awarded in 2008 in honor of the Booker’s 40th anniversary.

The epic novel tells the story of Saleem Sinai, born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947 – the precise moment of India’s independence. India didn’t become the second most populous country on earth with a low birth rate, and Saleem isn’t the only child who shares his country’s exact date and time of birth. One thousand “midnight’s children” were born at the dawn of independence and Saleem is telepathically linked to them all. Their existence reflects India’s chaos and represents its salvation.

Saleem’s personal story – crowded, colorful, conflicted, curried – is a history of modern India.

Please check our online catalog for available copies of the book and join us for our discussion on the January 28.

The Grandview Library showcases some of the most renowned and beloved filmmakers in cinema history with this series of movies, each one indicative of its maker's unique style.

Mondays, December 8-February 2 (except 12/29) at 6 pm.

12/8: The Searchers (1956)
John Ford reunites with his favorite actor John Wayne in what is considered one of the finest and most important westerns ever made.

12/15: Citizen Kane (1941)
Orson Welles pulls off the ultimate triple play by directing, co-writing, and starring in this cynical look at one man's rise to wealth and power.

12/22: Ginger and Fred (1986)
Two of Federico Fellini's favorite actors, his wife Giulietta Masina and avatar Marcello Mastroianni, play former dance partners reunited. (Note: Not THAT Ginger and Fred!)

12/29: OFF

1/5: Day for Night (1973)
Francois Truffaut’s look at the day-to-day headaches - and joys - of making a motion picture, from one of the bona fide experts on the subject.

1/12: Red River (1948)
Classic filmmaker Howard Hawks has John Wayne and Montgomery Clift lock horns during a cattle drive across the western frontier.

1/19: Imitation of Life (1959)
Celebrate Martin Luther King Day with this extravagant, and typically melodramatic (for director Douglas Sirk), examination of racial issues in 1950s America. Starring Lana Turner

1/26: Dreams (1990)
One of the Japanese master's last and most personal works, Akira Kurosawa takes us on a picturesque journey into his own dream life. Worth the price of admission to see director Martin Scorsese as Vincent van Gogh.

2/2The Age of Innocence (1993)
See what happens when geniuses of literature and cinema intersect in Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Edith Wharton's tragically beautiful novel. Starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Daniel Day-Lewis.
