Community Room
Wednesday, Jul 15, 6:00pm to 7:30pm

In a remote Polish village Janina devotes the dark winter days to studying astrology translating the poetry of William Blake and taking care of the summer homes of wealthy Warsaw residents. Her reputation as a crank and a recluse is amplified by her not-so-secret preference for the company of animals over humans. Then a neighbor Big Foot turns up dead. Soon other bodies are discovered in increasingly strange circumstances. As suspicions mount Janina inserts herself into the investigation certain that she knows whodunit. If only anyone would listen to her.
