Every quarter we choose a theme and pick out three movies to both watch and talk a bit about. Our Multimedia Librarian, Ted (that’s me!), introduces each film and gives a little background and information about the movie. Our Winter Movie Discussion theme focuses on the great movie star Marilyn Monroe.
Fifty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe still fascinates us and is still a cultural icon. Before each film, I will talk about the life of Norma Jeane Mortenson and what she was doing at the time each film was being made. Please join us for what should be a fascinating look at one of Hollywood’s biggest stars!
