Now Playing at the Library: The Big Lebowski, Tuesday Night

Do you enjoy bowling? White Russians? Nihilists?  All of the above?  Come join us to watch the Coen Brothers' cult classic Tuesday night (September 14) at 6:30 PM, which features all of those things and so much more!  Did I mention there will be free pizza?  The movie will also be the first meeting of a new group we started at the library for twenty and thirty-somethings called Young and Restless (YAR, for short).  Please, check out the shiny, new Facebook page for YAR.

For fans of the Big Lebowski or other Coen Bros' films, check out The Dude Abides: The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers by Catherine Falsani (Find it in the catalog!).  The book frames the Coens' films in a religious context; Dudeists may be surprised to learn that the Dude is in fact a lamed-vavnik*.

Event Info:
When: Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 6:30 PM
Where: Dundee Township Public Library District, Meeting Room
What: Watch the Big Lebowski and eat pizza. 
Cost: Free  

* Lamed-vavnik= In Judaism, one of the 36 righteous ones.  If even one is killed, the world will end.
