Big Read

24 Oct

What a wonderful month we have had learning about Dashiell Hammett and The Maltese Falcon. Yesterday was another great lecture– this time about the 3 different movie versions of the book. The talk was given by Dr. Scott Balcerzak of NIU. I can’t wait to Netflix the first 2 movies. This week we have several more programs. Be sure to check them out.

Big Read

10 Oct

The Big Read is off to a flying start. Sara Paretsky spoke eloquently about Dashiell Hammett and The Maltese Falcon as well as her own works. Coming up for adults is a public reading. If you would like to imitate Humphrey Bogart or any of the other characters let the library know.
