Hernando library workshop, book group open to all


Library workshop, movie, book discussion group open to all

The Hernando County Public Library System will host the following:

• Writing workshop, 1 to 2 p.m. June 11, East Hernando Branch Library, 6457 Windmere Road, Ridge Manor West. The workshop will include writing exercises and positive critique. There is no cost or registration required.

• Showing of Enchanted, 2 p.m. June 12, Spring Hill Branch/Harold G. Zopp Memorial Library, 9220 Spring Hill Drive, Spring Hill. Disney's 2007 musical comedy, rated PG, is a fairy tale that lands in modern-day New York City. Before her marriage to Prince Edward, the animated storybook maiden Giselle (Amy Adams) finds herself thrust into present-day Manhattan by the evil queen. There, she befriends a handsome and cynical divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey), who changes her views on life and love, as Prince Edward goes to Manhattan to rescue his love. The film also stars Susan Sarandon and James Marsden. There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be served.

• The Brooksville Book Discussion Group will discuss The Plot Against America, written by Philip Roth, at 10:30 a.m. June 14 at Lykes Memorial Library, 238 Howell Ave., Brooksville. This novel offers an alternative history in which the heroic aviator and isolationist Charles Lindbergh is elected president in 1940, then negotiates an "understanding" with Adolf Hitler. The story follows the Roth family during the Lindbergh presidency, as antisemitism becomes more accepted in American life and Jewish-American families like the Roths are persecuted on various levels. Copies of the book are limited.

For information about these programs, call the library program staff at 540-6391.
