His Girl Friday. 1940, 92 mins. Directed by Howard Hawks. In this classic screwball comedy, a gem of Hollywood’s golden age, Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell deliver perhaps the funniest, certainly the fastest talkie comedy ever made. When a hard-boiled newspaper editor learns that his ex-wife and former employee is set to marry an insurance salesman, he’s convinced that it’s the wrong move for an ambitious woman and decides to sabotage her plans. Registration required. Open to all.
There is no single American narrative, there are millions of personal stories across the country: gay, straight, white, black, Asian, Latino, Native American,rural, urban, immigrant, religious, secular, living with disability, able-bodied (and more!) Join librarian Thérèse Purcell Nielsen in a year-long project of examining our American Stories as recorded in memoirs and autobiographies.
We begin in September with Ordinary Light by Tracy K. Smith, Pulitzer-Prize winning former Poet Laureate of the United States. Smith’s subtle memoir recounts issues of race and faith and was named a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award.
