Celebrate Black History Month by joining us at the Courtenay Library to watch the film adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's The Help.
Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, THE HELP stars Emma Stone as Skeeter, Academy Award nominated Viola Davis as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed, even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.
This is a free event and everyone is welcome! Bring your dinner with you, or help yourself to the provided refreshments.
