Book Club Movie Night!

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on September 3, 2016

SATURDAY, SEPT 10th @ 7pm

The Seldovia Public Library and the Sea Otter Community Center will be hosting our first Book Club Movie Night! The book club recently read the best-selling novel “Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes and now we will be watching the just-released movie!  The book had an ending that created some great conversation, but you can never tell where the movie will go!

EVERYONE IS INVITED – even if you haven’t read the book or haven’t been to the book club meetings!

Please join us SATURDAY, SEPT 10th @ 7pm.


Movie synopsis: “Young and quirky Louisa “Lou” Clark (Emilia Clarke) moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will’s cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined.”
