The Afternoon Pinney book group will host a discussion of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. New attendees always welcome. Note: meeting is at Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr.). Synopsis: Considered one of the greatest mysteries of all times, ten strangers, each with a dark secret, are gathered together on an isolated island by a mysterious host. One by one, they die, and before the weekend is out, there will be none. Ten houseguests, trapped on an isolated island, are the prey of a diabolical killer. A famous nursery rhyme is framed and hung in every room of the mansion: Ten little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine ... When they realize that murders are occurring as described in the rhyme, terror mounts. Who has choreographed this dastardly scheme? And who will be left to tell the tale?

This is Home: A Refugee Story (2018)

Meeting Rooms A & B Combined
Wednesday, Sep 11, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

"This is Home" (2018) is an intimate portrait of four Syrian refugee families arriving in America and struggling to find their footing. With only eight months of help from the International Rescue Committee to become self-sufficient, they must forge ahead to rebuild their lives in a new home: Baltimore, Maryland. They attend cultural orientation classes and job training sessions where they must "learn America" -- everything from how to take public transportation to negotiating new gender roles.
The documentary is 91 minutes long, with a brief, optional discussion following the showing.

This event is part of a series which supports the book launch of Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from Madison and Milwaukee High Schools​. Generous financial support for this series is provided by the Friends of the Lakeview Library and the Friends of the Sequoya Library, with funding for the Green Card Youth Voices--Madison exhibit with a grant from the Beyond the Page Endowment Fund.
