Way Library Reel Talk to screen, discuss ‘Grapes of Wrath’ January 8Written by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Reel Talk will continue Jan. 8 with “The Grapes of Wrath.” The 1940 film is based on of John Steinbeck’s classic American novel about the Great Depression. The story traces the life of the impoverished Joad family as they migrate from the desolation of the Oklahoma Dust Bowl to find work in the orchards of California. Directed by John Ford, the film stars Henry Fonda and Jane Darwell.
Way Library’s monthly book discussion book is reading the Steinbeck novel for January to coincide with the film exhibition, and book club members will be joining the movie-going audience for the film.
A combined book and film discussion will take place after the screening. Sig Humanski, retired Toledo City School literature and English teacher will lead the discussion and take questions from the audience afterwards.
The film begins at 10:00 a.m. Admission and refreshments are free. The library is located at 101 E. Indiana Avenue. Call (419) 874-3135 for more information.
