Join us for this delightful, original, holiday musical by David Rivers, Cathy Hudnall and Laura Carroll.

It’s Christmas Eve and Cindy receives an early gift from her mother. It is a snow globe with Peppermint, the Christmas Fairy inside. Cindy is excited and shakes the globe and suddenly Peppermint appears in real life. Cindy is told with each shake of the globe and a wish, she will see a different snow globe world (an old fashioned Christmas, Scrooge, a Christmas Princess, and a North Pole world).

Finally, everyone is the cast joins Cindy and Peppermint in singing “Just a Christmas Wish Away”. Cindy realizes she can keep the holiday spirit alive all year by using her imagination and making a “Good Will Wish”.

After the performance, children will be able to meet the characters!

Thursday Night at the Movies
Main Library
Thursday, Dec. 18, 6:00 pm
Stella Gibbons wrote Cold Comfort Farm to be a parody of Thomas Hardy and the Bronte sisters’ books.  
The heroineof the movie, Flora Poste, has just come into a small inheritance from her parents—but not quite enough to live on.  She takes up an offer from her Starkadder cousins at Cold Comfort Farm to visit for a while; they thought hosting her would perhaps this will atone for the wrong done to her father(?)  She discovers doom and gloom, but decides to set things right for all of the miserable people living there.  Stars include Rufus Sewell, Kate Beckinsale, Ian McKellen and Stephen Fry.

It is very funny--a light choice for a December movie.  It is 95 minutes long and is rated PG. Call us at 595-1243 for more information about the movie.

Andra Watkins talks
Andra Watkins talks about walking the Natchez Trace in her new book Not Without My Father
Main Library
Wednesday, Jan. 14, 6:30 pm
Andra Watkins will be talking about her new book Not Without My Father: one woman’s 444-mile walk of the Natchez Trace.  Reminiscent of A Walk in the Woods (by Bill Bryson), Andra asked for volunteers to walk the Natchez Trace with her.  No one took her up on the adventure of a lifetime.  She finally convinced her 80 year old father to walk with her, since she needed someone to go with her.   But he had issues: he took his CPAP machine with him and he had other health problems.  But he had a car and gas.   She also hoped to reconnect with her father after many years.  They walked from March 1, 2014 to April 3, 2014, fifteen miles a day. Six days a week, with one rest day per week. This is her account of this 444 mile walk.

The Natchez Trace, which runs from Nashville (Franklin really) to Natchez, Mississippi was created by Indian tribes and later used by settlers, the military on their way to fight against the Indian tribes and the British.  It is a scenic drive by car, motorcycle or bicycle.  Andra would be the first person in modern times to walk the Trace.  For more information, click here:  http://www.nps.gov/natr/index.htm
 
Andra Watkins is the author of To Live Forever: an afterlife journey of Meriwether Lewis in which Lewis seeks redemption from Limbo by helping a young girl find her father.
