The dinner & movie series, “@ the Oscars” continues with the film, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” which will be featured Monday, March 25 at 6 p.m. This is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award nominee Martin McDonagh. After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon, an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated. Frances McDormand (Mildred) received the Best Actress Award and Sam Newell (Officer Dixon) received the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in this film. A light meal will be available. Library programs are free and open to the public.

Joseph Finder’s latest novel is “Judgment.” Back in Boston, Judge Juliana Brody soon realizes that her one-night stand in Chicago was no random encounter. The man has an integral role in a sex-discrimination case that has received national attention. It soon becomes clear that personal humiliation or even the destruction of her career is the least of her concerns – her life and the lives of her family are in mortal jeopardy. In the end, turning the tables on her adversaries will require her to be as ruthless as they are. This book is also available on CD.
