Movie Night
Wednesday, December 28th 4:30 p.m.

A tree Grows in Brooklyn

In December the Book Group will be watching the original 1945 version of 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.' This adaptation of the classic novel tells the story of young Francie Nolan (Peggy Ann Garner) who yearns for life beyond her Brooklyn apartment building. While her daily routine is difficult, she makes the best of her situation, living with her hard-working mother (Dorothy McGuire), alcoholic father (James Dunn) and tough little brother (Ted Donaldson). Encouraged by her kind but irresponsible dad, Francie struggles to keep her hopes up and persevere despite all the odds against her.

Light refreshments will be served.
