A Galaxy of Reading

Star Wars Reads Day LogoStar Wars, Star Wars, everywhere you look lately you will see Jedi, Wookies, Stormtroopers, and Droids.  Our mouse eared friends over a Disney marketing are making absolutely sure we know that there is a new Star Wars movie coming out this year (December 18th 2015…in case you were wondering).  Not to be left out libraries across the country are going to once again celebrate Star Wars Read Day (October 10th 2015).  We here at APL thought well one day is great, but a whole week would be better!  So we are starting off our Star Wars read week on October 4th with a Star Wars Laser Tag event over at Family Time, Dine, and Play in the Auburn Mall (Formerly Jokers). So get in costume and come and join the fun and games.  You can’t go see the new movie without catching up on the current events in the star wars universe … right?  So don’t forget to check out your favorite star wars books / comics / movies from the library too. Enjoy the game, movies, and great reads about a galaxy far far away and as always May the force be with you.

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far from the Madding Crowd

The classic story by Thomas Hardy is of an independent and headstrong woman, Bathsheba, who has three very different men pursue her.  Carey Mulligan is perfect as Bathsheba giving her all the qualities you expect with passion and strong emotions.  Matthias Schoenaerts along with Tom Sturridge and Michael Sheen portray her various suitors equally well.  The drama is filmed in Dorset England which is the location in Hardy’s story and is the perfect setting for this Victorian tale of relationships and adversity.
