Two-Faced God book cover
Poetry Reading: Two-Face God by Jason McCall
Wednesday, April 4, 6:00 pm

Jason McCall, poet and UNA Assistant Professor of English, will visit FLPL to perform a reading and lead a discussion on his new poetry collection Two-Face God

The hard truth of Jason McCall’s Two-Face God is this: there is no space in this world without duality, without the glossy surface and the hidden darkness, that always pushes through and must be reckoned with. From love, to history, to memory, to race, these poems probe this duality.

The Screening Room: The Gold Rush (1925)
Sunday, April 8, 2:00 pm

The free film series The Screening Room: Classics, Crowd-Pleasers, Cult Favorites and Neglected Gems continues its 2018 lineup with a screening of The Gold Rush (1925).

In this classic silent comedy, the Little Tramp (Charles Chaplin) heads north to join in the Klondike gold rush. Trapped in a small cabin by a blizzard, the Tramp is forced to share close quarters with a successful prospector (Mack Swain) and a fugitive (Tom Murray). Eventually able to leave the cabin, he falls for a lovely barmaid (Georgia Hale), trying valiantly to win her affections. When the prospector needs help locating his claim, it appears the Tramp’s fortunes may change.

The series — sponsored by the library and Pillar of Fire — is hosted by film historian and Pillar of Fire founder Terry Pace and his wife, Anita. Admission is free.

There will also be other fun Thor and weather related activities, as well as plenty of books you can check out to learn more.
