Adult Programs

Tuesday Books Discussion Group (virtual): 9: 30-11: 15 am June 8. The Tuesday Book Discussion Group joins forces with the Concord Military Support Group in June to read and discuss “Un-American: A Soldier’s Reckoning of Our Longest War” by Erik Edstrom. All are welcome and a limited number of copies of the book will be available at the main library. Email [email protected] to subscribe and receive the Zoom link.

Films at Fowler: Summer Art House – “The Lobster” (Virtual): 7 p.m. June 10. This summer, Films at Fowler presents six “Summer Art House” films, all provocative, surprising, fun and independent in mind. They are both stimulating and entertaining. On June 10, attendees will discuss “The Lobster” (2015) – a surreal black comedy by Yorgos Lanthimos and starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz. In the film, singles have 45 days to find a romantic partner, otherwise they are transformed into an animal of their choice. Participants should watch “The Lobster” on Kanopy prior to the discussion (free access to Kanopy is available with a library card). To subscribe and receive a Zoom link, please email [email protected]gmail.com.
