Wednesday Movie – The Beguiled

the beg

Wednesday, October 18, 7:00 (91 min., R)

During the Civil War, a Union soldier is injured, captured and held prisoner at a boarding school for Confederate girls. It is during his stay there that he begins to manipulate each of the residents of the school, taking advantage of the situation and their intense loneliness. In time, the girls begin to fight and manipulate one another in an effort to win his affections. It is not long, however, before the tables are turned and he becomes the subject of their ire.

Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shanty boat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force.

Wrenched from all that is familiar and thrown into a Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage, the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents—but they quickly realize the dark truth.

Register beginning on Monday, October 2, and pick up your book to get started reading!  Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too!  We’ll see you there!

Frontier Life – New Database!

Frontier Life

JMCPL is pleased to announce we are offering a new database to our patrons!

This online collection captures the lives of people living on the edge of European settlement across the various frontiers of North America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Through a huge array of digitized primary source materials it documents the creation of new states, trade networks, and movements of people in these regions alongside the marginalization and decline of indigenous peoples. Material ranges across four centuries, from the seventeenth to the early twentieth century.

Frontier Life brings together documents from sixteen archives and libraries around the world. This geographical spread of material allows users to take a  comparative approach or focus on a particular region, making it ideal for teaching and student projects, as well as more in-depth scholarly research.
