Monthly meeting of North Parish book/movie group

February 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for the North Parish book/movie group.  We meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month from September to June. For more information and to obtain a Zoom link to the meetings, please email BookClub@northparish.org.

February’s movie selection is Miss Juneteenth – 16 copies library. Can rent for $6.99 on Amazon Prime This movie is centered around a single mom, a former pageant winner, prepares her rebellious teenage daughter for the Juneteenth beauty pageant in hot, sweaty Fort Worth, Texas setting, a community centered around family and tradition Nicole Beharie, as the former pageant winner Turquoise Jones, as she holds a cigarette, shops for a used dress, or watches her daughter perform on stage, her face teetering between fear and pride, helps evoke a rich inner life and a sense of history. Her interactions with her elderly boss, her religious mother, and her on-again-off-again boyfriend (a wonderful Kendrick Sampson) hint at a complicated web of broken promises and stalled commitments. Similarly, director Channing Godfrey Peoples’s patient approach to the material draws the viewer in.
