Discussion Groups

Behind the Scenes: A Movie Discussion Club

Meets the last Monday of the month at 3:00 PM over Zoom. Event Details & Zoom link.

 More than entertaining stories to be viewed from a sofa and then benignly forgotten, cinema is an art form rich in expression and worthy of our time and attention. 

Join Brandon for a fun discussion of a variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple.  Each month, we’ll discuss two thematically-paired films and look “behind the scenes” to unpack each their historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings. 

You may laugh, you may cry, you may even raise an eyebrow and wonder “What was that?”, but you’ll certainly be affected. They don’t call ’em moving pictures for nothing!

Left to Write

Meets the first and third Tuesdays at 10:00 AM over Zoom. Event details & Zoom link.

Want to start writing your memoirs, but not sure where to start? Or have you begun and become stuck? Join our memoir writers’ group for gentle feedback that will help you improve your writing skills in a warm and supportive community. During each meeting, members take turns reading their recent work in exchange for feedback about parts that are especially enjoyable or meaningful. Participants also help identify missing information, and make editorial suggestions.
