The Road R
by Cormac McCarthy
Film Screening Date: 11/16/17 @6pm

A searing, post-apocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy’s masterpiece. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other.


Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
Arrival PG-13 (movie)
Film Screening Date: 1/15/2018

Stories of Your Life and Others delivers dual delights of the very, very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, often presenting characters who must confront sudden change—the inevitable rise of automatons or the appearance of aliens—with some sense of normalcy. The Story of Your Life and Others, featured in the collection Stories of Your Life and Others, served as inspiration for our featured movie, Arrival. When twelve mysterious spacecraft appear around the world, linguistics professor Louise Banks is tasked with interpreting the language of the apparent alien visitors.
