Moonlight & Magnolias

Friday, September 14th, 8:00 pm

The Theatre of Western Springs

It’s 1939, and legendary Hollywood producer David O.

Selznick has a problem. He has just fired the director of

Gone with the Wind and the script is on its umpteenth

version. He desperately needs a new director and

writer—immediately. His solution? Fire the director,

pull Victor Fleming off The Wizard of Oz, and lock

himself, Fleming, and script doctor Ben Hecht in his

office for five days until they have a screenplay. With

only peanuts and bananas to sustain them, they work

through and act out Margaret Mitchell’s bestseller and

in the process make movie history.

Join us for a benefit performance of this hilariously true story on Friday, September 14th at the

Theatre of Western Springs. Tickets are available at the library for $25 each. Proceeds will benefit

the library.

“Gone With the Wind”

Gift Basket Drawing

Enter to win a gift basket including wine,

a copy of Margaret Mitchell’s novel that

started it all, and a “must-have” for

GWTW fans, Herb Bridges Gone With the

Wind: A Definitive Illustrated History of the

Book, the Movie and the Legend. Enter at

the circulation desk or at our table in the

theater lobby the night of the performance.

Photography Workshop

Tuesday, November 13th, 7:00 pm

John Dziekan spent more than 30 years at the Chicago

Tribune as an award-winning photojournalist. This is

your chance to get advice from a pro on enhancing your

own photography. In his words, “I like to inspire people

to be more creative and resourceful in the way they capture

their images—to have a photographer’s vision. I also

stress that you don’t have to spend “mega-bucks” on photo

equipment; many excellent photos are made with very

simple equipment. I want people to leave the program with

a bright new outlook on making great photographs.”

Meet the candidates running for Congress in our

new 6th District

Leslie Coolidge: Tuesday, October 2nd, 7:00 pm

Peter Roskam: Date and time to be announced

The presidential election isn’t the only race going on this fall!

Here in the newly-drawn 6th Congressional District, there are some new faces

in the running. The two candidates are Republican Peter Roskam, incumbent

representative of the current 6th District, and Democrat Leslie Coolidge.

Because Clarendon Hills was formerly

in the 13th Congressional District,

these two names are probably

somewhat unfamiliar to many of

our residents. We’ve invited both

candidates to come to our library to

introduce themselves and meet the

residents of Clarendon Hills. WGN

Radio host Bill Moller has graciously

offered to interview the candidates.


Leslie Coolidge will visit our library

on Tuesday evening, October 2nd at

7:00 pm.

At press time we are still trying to

work out a schedule with the Roskam

campaign. Watch our website or
