    @
    Whiton Room

    It's the 25th anniversary of Christopher Guest's legendary "mockumentary" Waiting for Guffman, and it's a film that deserves to be seen again and again!

    When the town of Blaine, Mo., approaches its sesquicentennial, there's only one way to celebrate: with a musical revue called "Red, White and Blaine." Hoping the show will be his ticket back to Broadway, impresario Corky St. Clair (Christopher Guest) rounds up a cast of enthusiastic but untalented locals (Eugene Levy, Fred Willard, Catherine O'Hara) to perform his masterwork. But, when Corky reveals that theater agent Mort Guffman will attend the opening, things really kick into high gear.

  20. Evening With the Author: Casey Sherman presents Hell Town

    July 27, 2022, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
    @
    Whiton Room

    This is the untold true story of the serial killer who terrorized Cape Cod and captivated a nation.

    In the winter of 1969, the bodies of four young women were discovered in a cemetery near the tip of Cape Cod. In a place once known as Helltown, the victims had been shot, stabbed, dismembered, and mutilated. As investigators would soon learn, the perpetrator was a young, handsome, serial killer named Tony Costa. A bizarre former taxidermist with a split personality and penchant for violence, Costa ultimately mobilized friends in the hippie community for support and retribution and captivated literary icons and rivals Kurt Vonnegut and Norman Mailer. Costa embarked on a daring cat-and-mouse game with investigators, who—as the body count kept growing—were desperate to put an end to the killing season on Cape Cod.

    This event will be held in person at the Library. To join us, please register online.

(Sharing your work is optional! But we would love to hear what you have to say.)

    One registrant will be chosen at random to receive a $25 gift card to Nona’s Ice Cream store.

    Register here to receive our Thursday Thoughts email.
