Wednesday Movie – Angel Has Fallen

Wednesday, January 29, 6:45 (120 min., 14A)

President Alan Trumbull and his ‘guardian angel’, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning, enjoy a quiet fishing trip that takes a sudden, deadly turn as a fleet of drones drop a barrage of explosives, nearly killing them both. Mike awakens in the hospital, faced with the charge of attempted assassination of the President. In a race against time to prove his innocence, Mike must evade both the Secret Service and the FBI as he finds the true culprit that framed him.

Winter Book Club – Fleishman Is in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner

Thursday, January 30, 7:00

Toby Fleishman thought he knew what to expect when he and his wife of almost fifteen years separated: weekends and every other holiday with the kids, some residual bitterness, the occasional moment of tension in their co-parenting negotiations. He could not have predicted that one day, in the middle of his summer of sexual emancipation, Rachel would just drop their two children off at his place and simply not return. He had been working so hard to find equilibrium in his single life. The winds of his optimism, long dormant, had finally begun to pick up. Now this.

As Toby tries to figure out where Rachel went, all while juggling his patients at the hospital, his never-ending parental duties, and his new app-assisted sexual popularity, his tidy narrative of the spurned husband with the too-ambitious wife is his sole consolation. But if Toby ever wants to truly understand what happened to Rachel and what happened to his marriage, he is going to have to consider that he might not have seen things all that clearly in the first place.

Register beginning on Thursday, January 2, and pick up your book to get started reading!  Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too!  We’ll see you there!
