Summer Reading for Grown-ups presents...
THE ILLUSIONIST
From the director of the Oscar®-nominated classic The Triplets of Belleville, The Illusionist is a story about two paths that cross. While touring concert halls, theaters, and pubs, an aging, down-on-his-luck magician encounters a young girl at the start of her life’s journey. Alice is a teenage girl with all her capacity for childish wonder still intact. She plays at being a woman without realizing the day to stop pretending is fast approaching. She doesn’t know yet that she loves The Illusionist like she would a father; he already knows that he loves her as he would a daughter. Their destinies will collide, but nothing – not even magic or the power of illusion – can stop the voyage of discovery. 80 minutes / rated PG

The film is in French with English subititles.

Summer Reading for Grown-ups presents...
AN AUTHOR EVENT: FATA MORGANA

Ambitious, genre-busting, and grippingly believable, Fata Morgana is a beautifully crafted thrill ride that is part World War II adventure, part mind-bending science fiction, and part love story that is literally timeless.

At the height of the air war in Europe, Captain Joe Farley and the baseball-loving, wisecracking crew of the B-17 Flying Fortress Fata Morgana are in the middle of a harrowing bombing mission over East Germany when everything goes sideways. The bombs are still falling and flak is still exploding all around the 20-ton bomber as it is knocked like a bathtub duck into another world.

Authors Steven R. Boyett and Ken Mitchroney present an entertaining performance piece of some of the Fata Morgana cockpit conversations that take place in the book. For more information, click here. This event is presented by Summer Reading for Grown-ups, but all are welcome to attend! If you'd like to join the adult summer reading program, click here to register.
