A heartfelt novel about an unusual friendship--one woman's past inspiring another woman to improve her current situation--that transcends time in the deep South at the popular Whistle Stop Cafe during the 1930s. The critically-acclaimed 1991 movie, 137 minutes long and nominated for 2 Academy Awards (Jessica Tandy for Best Actress and Fannie Flag, the novel's author , for Best Adapted Screenplay), will follow the book discussion.  Those who want to discuss the book are invited to stay to view the movie and those who only want to view the movie are welcome to do so. Copies of the book are available at the SoNo Branch Library. Refreshments will be served.  This program is free and open to the public. Registration is available online or by calling 203.899.2790 x 15902.
