Ghosts on the Page – at Milkweed health & harmony emporium

Everyone loves a good ghost story – what role does a ghost play in literary fiction and Our Town? Writing instructor Addison James will lead the discussion.

The Wizard of Oz – at Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library

Join the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library at their showing of the classic movie, filmed in 1939, The Wizard of Oz.

Rated G | Free Admission

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow (Ray Bolger) that needs a brain, a Tin Man (Jack Haley) missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) to earn his help.

[Just like in Our Town, Dorothy learns to live in the moment and appreciate her family and hometown more.]
