French Film Discussion Series Continues Wednesday October 19 at 6pm

Rye resident Claire Malarte-Feldman, Director Emeritus of the UNH Center for International Education is leading a three-part French film discussion series which began in September and continues through November.  On Wednesday October 19 at 6pm we’ll continue the series with the film  Intouchables (2011) Nakache & Toledano  112 min  [The Untouchables]

An irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility. Based on a true story of friendship between a handicapped millionaire (Francois Cluzet) and his street smart ex-con caretaker (Omar Sy), this film depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common.

French Film Discussion Series Begins Thursday September 22 at 6pm

Rye resident Claire Malarte-Feldman, Director Emeritus of the UNH Center for International Education will lead a three-part French film discussion series beginning this month and continuing once monthly through November.  We’ll open the series with the film  Le Hérisson (2009) Mona Achache  100 min  [The Hedgehog]

Inspired by the New York Times bestseller, The Elegance of the Hedgehog, Le Herisson is the  story of Paloma a young girl bent on ending it all on her upcoming twelfth birthday. Using her father’s old camcorder to chronicle the hypocrisy she sees in adults, Paloma begins to learn about life from the grumpy building concierge, and  a wealthy and a sophisticated Japanese gentleman, Mr. Ozu.

When Paloma’s camera reveals the extensive secret library in Renée’s back room, and that the often gruff matron reads Tolstoy to her cat, Paloma begins to understand that there are allies to be found beneath the prickliest of exteriors. As the unlikely friendship deepens, Paloma’s own coming of age becomes a much less pessimistic prospect.

*** Touches on issues of class and culture. This film offers a subtle critique of French society and a blend of comedy and tragedy in a touching and improbable love story.

Local Authors Night Thursday Sept. 15 6:30pm

                  Local Authors Night at Rye Public Library

with Authors Brad Boucher, Shelby June and Denis Lipman

Thursday September 15th, 6:30pm at Rye Public Library

Join local authors Brad Boucher (The Shoals) Shelby June (Lost and Found), and Denis Lipman (A Yank Back In England) as they read from and discuss their recent works here at R.P. L!

Brad Boucher  lives in Hampton.  He has nine  books in print with a tenth on the way next month.  Although Brad is sometimes labeled as a horror writer, he prefers to say that he writes serious fiction that just happens to take place in the horror genre.

Shelby June is a New Hampshire native with many interests and activities including reading, writing, traveling, and creating memories with family and friends.  Legal assistant by day, she does her writing before and after work and on the weekends.  Lost and Found, her debut novel.

Denis Lipman is a Rye, NH resident by way of London.  After an early career in magic, Denis became an advertising executive. Following that successful career in the United States,  the British born author used his return to England with his American wife as inspiration for a humorous travelogue.   A Yank Back To England chronicles cottage rental, a stream of outlandish relations, local flavor and the true nature of the English countryside.
