"From acclaimed actress Robin Wright comes her directorial debut LAND, the poignant story of one woman’s search for meaning in the vast and harsh American wilderness. Edee (Wright), in the aftermath of an unfathomable event, finds herself unable to stay connected to the world she once knew and in the face of that uncertainty, retreats to the magnificent, but unforgiving, wilds of the Rockies. After a local hunter (Demi├ín Bichir) brings her back from the brink of death, she must find a way to live again." (Focus Features)

Talking About Race

 September 27th 7:00 p.m. via ZOOM

"Talking About Race: Staying Curious, Moving Forward, and Being Part of the Solution" 

This workshop is designed to encourage an open and thoughtful conversation on race, emphasizing how we can learn to appreciate and understand experiences and perspectives different from our own.  

At the center of the conversation, which will be facilitated by Allen Davis, an educator and racial justice activist, will be the experiences of four local African Americans, Grace Aldrich, Claire Holston, Jim Guy, and Luis Rosa. They have generously offered to share what it means to be Black in the U.S. and the Monadnock region.





September 27th 7:00 p.m. via ZOOM

Sponsored by the Harrisville Public Library and the Dublin Public Library with funding provided by the Harrisville Community Fund.
