"[A] book ... unlike a television program, moving picture or any other 'modern means of communication' ... can wait for years, yet be available at any moment when it happens to be needed."

—Joseph Wood Krutch (1893-1970) American critic, natrualist, writer, The Modern Temper

COMING SOON AT THE LIBRARY:

FREE  The Library will show “Corpse Bride” (PG)on Wednesday, October 22, at 2:00pm.

"Corpse Bride," directed by Tim Burton, is an animated operetta in which Victor is engaged to Victoria, the daughter of nobles who are now penniless.  When Victor stumbles over his complicated wedding vows, he walks in the woods to practice. When he says the vows, he places the ring on a "twig" that turns out to be the finger of Emily the Corpse Bride, who of course jumps up and happily informs him they are married. (She's very pretty, by the way, dead or not).  Much of the rest of the movie is taken up by Victor trying to figure out how to get out from the Underworld and by Emily trying to convince him to stay. Gradually, however, Victor finds, to his surprise, that he is falling in love with Emily.  In the end the viewers have heard some good lessons about love.
This is a favorite Halloween movie with a good story, amazing animation and brilliant comedy. (Do not let the name make you think that it is creepy.)
