Film: Sciuscia (Shoeshine)

 1946. Directed by Vittorio De Sica. In post WWII Italy, Giuseppe and Pasquale work on the street, shining the shoes of American troops to save up to buy a horse, but their involvement in a burglary lands them in juvenile prison, where the experience takes a devastating toll on their friendship.

Gardening Talk: Gardening in Tune with Nature

The talk, led by authors Reeser Manley & Marjorie Peronto, will focus on the major themes of their book, The New England Gardener’s Year, including the philosophy that the garden should be viewed as an ecosystem in which native plants predominate and all forms of life contribute to the gardener’s success. Manley and Peronto will also present the practical aspects of gardening covered in the book, including pruning, composting, and cover cropping.  The presentation will be followed by a book-signing event for those interested in purchasing a book.
