Once he had gained his freedom, he embarked on a new set of heists that left investigators scratching their heads and the public fascinated by the story. This true story details Tucker's life which includes a detective wrapped up in the case, and a female who takes a liking to Tucker despite the criminal path he's on. Starring Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek.

March 25: The Green Book (PG-13, ©Universal Pictures)

Synopsis: Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali and Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen star in Green Book, a film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class, and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line. When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on 'The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

 

Lunch and Learns:

Join us for a special presentation every other month (even numbered months).

February 27: Presentation with author Judith Austin Mills

Author Judith Austin Mills will share her research into Texas History that has informed and inspired her novels. Refreshments will be provided

Austin earned her M.A. in English at the University of Texas with a concentration in Creative Writing.
Lately, the author’s fiction is set in early nineteenth-century Texas and Southern U.S. Her debut novel How Far Tomorrow (2011) and Those Bones at Goliad (fall, 2015) embrace less-known figures in the Texas Revolution and portray ordinary people transformed by that short war. A third novel in this setting percolates—featuring a Charleston prep-school youth who rushed to New Orleans to join the Georgia Battalion leaving for Texas, and the nearly forgotten revolution Tejano Juan Seguin.

This event is intended for those 55 and up, but anyone 18 and up is welcome to attend. (Children will not be allowed at this program.)
