Monday, September 28 the film, “Wild” will be shown as part of the Dinner & Movie series, “Images of Walking.” After years of reckless and destructive behavior Cheryl Strayed makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience and driven only by sheer determination, she hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. The film powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her. A light meal will be included and Deane Tucker, PhD., Chadron State College will lead the discussions. Library programs are free and open to the public, so plan to attend!

Elizabeth Adler’s newest book is “One Way or Another.” One moment Angie Morse is standing on the deck of a large luxury yacht and the next she feels a stinging blow to her head from a champagne bottle – and then a push. She is in the water. The yacht slowly pulls away. No one seems to have noticed she’s gone. The people on board are her friends. One is her love. Two had a reason to get rid of her. Revenge burns so deeply inside her that she knows she will survive, and she will get them – one way or another.
