This week at the library...

and
TUESDAY
Buena Vista Branch, 4:00 p.m.

Family Films presents...
BOSS BABY
The story of a new baby's arrival, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator -- a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim. The unusual Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives at Tim's home in a taxi, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.

97 minutes / rated PG



TUESDAY
Buena Vista Branch, 6:30 p.m.

Twilight Cinema presents...
THE PROMISE
Empires fall, love survives. When Michael (Oscar Isaac), a brilliant medical student, meets Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between Michael and Ana’s boyfriend Chris (Christian Bale), a famous American photojournalist dedicated to exposing political truth. As the Ottoman Empire crumbles into war-torn chaos, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to get their people to safety and survive themselves.

A VISIT WITH
CORY DOCTOROW
Burbank Public Library is thrilled to welcome author Cory Doctorow to discuss his latest novel, Walkaway. Part sci-fi thriller, part polemic from an activist blogger, this novel explores the momentous changes coming during the next 100 years. It is an epic tale of revolution, love, war, and the end of death.

Cory is co-editor of the popular weblog BoingBoing, which receives more than three million visitors a month, and a columnist for The Guardian, Publishers Weekly, and Locus. His science fiction has won numerous awards, and his young adult novel Little Brother spent seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
