Monday, September 24, 6:15 (148 min., R)

Freshly graduated from college with a promising future ahead, Christopher McCandless instead walked out of his privileged life and into the wild in search of adventure. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an enduring symbol for countless people – a fearless risk-taker who wrestled with the precarious balance between man and nature. Based on a true story.

Co-sponsored by Canadian Institute of Forestry and Ministry of Environment Forest Service.

National Forest Week is September 23 to 29.

Fall Book Club – Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

51D-zLCy4OL._AA218_

Thursday, September 27, 7:00

In pursuit of a Russian sleeper cell on American soil, CIA analyst Vivian Miller uncovers a dangerous secret that will threaten her job, her family—and her life. On track for a much-needed promotion, she’s developed a system for identifying Russian agents, seemingly normal people living in plain sight.

After accessing the computer of a potential Russian operative, Vivian stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents within America’s borders. A few clicks later, everything that matters to her—her job, her husband, even her four children—is threatened.‎
