Showtime Movie: Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight

Tuesday August 19, 2014
2:00 PM  -  4:00 PM

Contact: Kimberly Usselman   333-2552 X3   read@cumberlandlibrary.org

Escape from the heat and join us in the Children’s Room on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. for a special showtime movie.  Nine-year-old Isabelle is an inspired dancer with a flair for fashion design. She’s thrilled to be studying ballet at a prestigious performing arts school but her classmates are so talented, and she can’t help feeling that she’s always in the shadow of her ‘perfect’ older sister Jade. So when her idol, a famous ballerina, encourages her to audition for a professional ballet, Isabelle isn’t sure she can land the role.

Parents and/or guardians are asked to remain in the Children’s Program Room with their child for the duration of the movie.  Families may bring in a beverage in a closed container, such as a juice box, to enjoy during the movie.  A snack will be provided.

This program is for children ages 4-12 and their families. A limited number of FREE tickets will be available in the Children’s Room beginning Tuesday, August 12, 2014.

10:00 AM  -  12:30 PM

Contact: Melissa Chiavaroli   (401) 333-2552, x2   reference@cumberlandlibrary.org

This month’s pick is Saturday by Ian McEwan.

In his triumphant new novel, Ian McEwan, the bestselling author of Atonement, follows an ordinary man through a Saturday whose high promise gradually turns nightmarish. Henry Perowne–a neurosurgeon, urbane, privileged, deeply in love with his wife and grown-up children–plans to play a game of squash, visit his elderly mother, and cook dinner for his family. But after a minor traffic accident leads to an unsettling confrontation, Perowne must set aside his plans and summon a strength greater than he knew he had in order to preserve the life that is dear to him. (from the Amazon.com review)
