THE MEDDLER
With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori, a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others - as well as her own - and find a new purpose in life.

100 minutes / rated PG-13

SAT PRACTICE TEST FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
with KAPLAN Test Prep and Admissions
This mock exam under timed conditions gives students a chance to practice before they take the real test. Online pre-registration was required; the limit of 60 students has been reached, and the waiting list is also full, so if you are not signed up, you will not be admitted.


If you are signed up and discover you are unable to come, please call 818 238-5625 (the reference desk) and ask the librarian to write down your name and give it to Anarda Williams. Those on the waiting list will be admitted in the order they signed up, should people from the regular list cancel.

If students are able to bring a phone or tablet with a data or wifi connection, they can score their tests at the end of the exam; if not, they can score it from home. All students should bring two #2 pencils and a calculator. (A sweater is also recommended!) Students please arrive on time: There will be no late admissions, and you risk losing your spot to someone on the waiting list.
