80's Art House Cinema


LOCAL HERO

Storrs Library will be showing films of the Reagan era that were off-beat and yet showcased directors that later went on to great acclaim, from Gus Van Sant to Spike Lee to Nancy Savoca.

Come see what was playing at your art house cinemas in the 1980s while Top Gun and Rambo were being shown at the new "multiplexes."

Setting Your Voice Free Writing Workshop

Join us for this six-week workshop for active and aspiring writers with author Linda Cardillo.

Wednesday, October 24th
10:30 to 12:30 p.m.
Upstairs Screening Room


Your writer’s voice is as distinctive as your fingerprint or the pattern of your iris. It is an expression of “you” in a deeply personal and visceral way. But as writers we often flounder trying to achieve a distinctive voice.

Rather than seeking to capture your voice, come discover how to set it free.
Explore the roles perception, memory and emotional honesty play in developing and refining your unique voice as a writer.
