September News and Notes
SAVE THE DATE - Author Leif Enger in Person at Rialto Cinemas Elmwood, Saturday, October 27 - 11:00am!
We're delighted to host Leif Enger (Peace Like a River) in celebration of the publication of his wonderful new novel, Virgil Wander, much of which takes place in and around a beloved old movie theater not unlike our own here in the Elmwood. There will also be a special screening of the classic Italian film Cinema Paradiso (click here for trailer) in connection with the reading and signing. Several of our staff members have already deemed Virgil Wander one of their favorite books of the year, and we expect a big crowd for this special occasion. Read more about Virgil Wander here.
Buy your tickets, with or without book, through Eventbrite: https://leifengermrsds.eventbrite.com or in the store. We will have additional copies of Virgil Wander and Peace Like a River for sale at the event.
