Winner of 7 Cesar Awards in France, Tous les Matins du Monde (All the Mornings of the World) tells the story of 17th-century baroque composer and cellist Monsieur de Saint Colombe. After the death of his wife, Saint Colombe rejects the outside world in order to raise his two daughters. He is vehemently opposed to performing in public until he is swayed by his young protégé, Marin Marais (played by Gerard Depardieu). The soundtrack features music by Saint Colombe, Marais, Lully, and Couperin.
This Event is Free and Open to the Public.

The story opens with former bank manager Emilio being dispatched to a retirement home by his family. His new roommate is a wily wheeler-dealer named Miguel, who cheerfully swindles small amounts of cash from the more befuddled residents but is also full of handy insider tips that are crucial to survival. Using hand-drawn animation, Wrinkles moves freely between the inmates' daily routines and their more colorful, dementia-induced fantasies, leaving plenty of room for both tears and laughter as it pokes pointed fun at society's attitude towards the elderly.

SUNRISE by Hoosier author Mike Mullen
Life and death struggles, bullies and leaders, passionate love and searing hate; it all takes place in a post apocalyptic Illinois where the sun has been hidden for the many, many months and a frozen world of snow and gloom has taken over the US Midwest. Sunrise is the concluding chapter in Hoosier Mike Mullin’s trilogy of life after the eruption of the Yellowstone super-volcano. It's a concluding read you don’t want to miss!
