Adults are invited to join us for our summer movie fest of monthly movies based on popular adult books! No RSVPs are required and light refreshments will be served. Movies will be shown on our 96″ screen, so bring your friends and beat the beat! Adults who attend will each receive on raffle ticket – two if they show their SJCPLS library card – for a copy of the book the monthly movie is based upon! This book is also owned by SJCPLS in print as well as downloadable formats via Overdrive. Thank you to the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library for generously sponsoring our Literary Movie Matinees this summer for adults.
This month, the Movie Matinee will be “Where the Crawdads Sing,” the adaptation which is based upon the book of the same name by Delia Owens. Amazon Summary for “Where the Crawdads Sing” starring Daisy Edgar-Jones: “From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.” Join us!
