SAGE Film Series Begins with "The Searchers"

 

Tomorrow!  April 21, 2017 at 10 a.m., SAGE Program begins its Friday film series with the classic movie “The Searchers,” starring John Wayne.  A Civil War veteran spends five years on the trail of a Comanche raiding party that kidnapped his dead brother's daughters. Breathtaking scenery gives a picture of frontier families separated by miles of emptiness.

Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Snow childTitle to be discussed: The snow child by Eowyn Ivey.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, May 9, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "Alaska, 1920: a brutal place to homestead, and especially tough for recent arrivals Jack and Mabel. Childless, they are drifting apart--he, breaking under the weight of the work of the farm; she, crumbling from loneliness and despair. In a moment of levity during the season's first snowfall, they build a child out of snow. The next morning the snow child is gone--but they glimpse a young, blonde-haired girl running through the trees. This little girl, who calls herself Faina, seems to be a child of the woods. She hunts with a red fox at her side, skims lightly across the snow, and somehow survives alone in the Alaskan wilderness. As Jack and Mabel struggle to understand this child who could have stepped from the pages of a fairy tale, they come to love her as their own daughter. But in this beautiful, violent place things are rarely as they appear, and what they eventually learn about Faina will transform all of them."
