The movie, “The Divine Order” will be featured during September’s Dinner & Movie series on September 24 at 6 p.m. Deane Tucker, PhD., Chadron State College professor will facilitate the discussion. It’s Switzerland, 1971 and Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives with her husband, their two sons and her father-in-law in a village. In the Swiss countryside, little or nothing is felt of the huge social upheavals that the movement of May 1968 has caused. Nora’s life, too, has been unaffected; she is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone – until she begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women’s right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7th, 1971. A light meal will be served and library programs are free and open to the public.
