    (2015)  Starring  Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay.  Room is the extraordinary story of Jack, a spirited five-year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma. Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. However, they are trapped in a windowless, 11-by-11-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named ''Room.'' As Jack's curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma's resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world. Rated R; 118 min. Discussion and refreshments to follow screening.

    "How are you handling change?  Many changes are occurring now in the lives of all of us, but does 'change' have to equal 'crisis'?  No.  Not if you have the means with which you can change your experience of change - and that is what you are holding in your hand. This is more than a book about change. It's about how life itself works. It is about the very nature of change - why it happens, how to deal with it, and how to make it be 'for the better.'  Is it possible that what you are about to read has come to you at the right and perfect time...?  The author of the Conversations with God series presents a fresh and startling perspective on something that will never change: Change Itself."

    The bestselling debut with over a million copies sold that launched Tana French, “required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting” (The New York Times), who is “the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (The Washington Post

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.

    Richly atmospheric and stunning in its complexity, In the Woods is utterly convincing and surprising to the end.

    Books are available at the library; new members always welcome!
