Wednesday Movie – Plus One

Wednesday, September 18, 7:00 (98 min., NR)

When a summer full of weddings creeps up, two longtime platonic friends decide to team up and go as each others’ dates. Amid champagne toasts and raucous dances, they discover even more about one another. As their family and friends question the nature of their relationship, they explore what it means to be single – and what it would take to make the giant leap to coupledom. In a world where everyone seems sure about their relationships, these attractive oddballs embark on the most uncertain ride of their lives.

Fall Book Club – The Huntress by Kate Quinn

Thursday, September 26, 7:00

On the icy edge of Soviet Russia, bold and reckless Nina Markova joins the infamous Night Witches – an all-female bomber regiment – wreaking havoc on Hitler’s eastern front. But when she is downed behind enemy lines and thrown across the path of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, Nina must use all her wits to survive. British war correspondent Ian Graham has witnessed the horrors of war from Omaha Beach to the Nuremburg Trials. He abandons journalism after the war to become a Nazi hunter, yet one target eludes him: the Huntress. Fierce, disciplined Ian must join forces with reckless, cocksure Nina, the only witness to escape the Huntress alive. In post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is delighted when her long-widowed father brings home a fiancee. But Jordan grows increasingly disquieted by the soft-spoken German widow who seems to be hiding something. Delving into her new stepmother’s past, Jordan slowly realizes that a Nazi killer may be hiding in plain sight.
