November 2nd Library Column

We have many events in our WWI centennial series this week, and several more days to view the traveling display from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. Without further ado:

Tonight (Thursday, November 2) we’re showing the 1938 film Dawn Patrol starring Errol Flynn, David Niven, and Basil Rathbone. That lineup just screams dashing, doesn’t it? Lots of aerial action in this one, and I will be interested to see how the build up to World War II may have colored this film about World War I. The movie starts at 6:30.

October 26 Newspaper Column

Our World War One series gets started in earnest this week. We have a soldier’s uniform and kit on loan from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum in our front display case through November 6. Tonight we screen the first film in our series – Steven Spielberg’s War Horse – at 6:30. And we have an additional three films and six programs coming next month, looking at everything from music to air power, the home front to the front lines. Our complete schedule is now on the library website under Upcoming Events.
