Holiday Movie

This year's holiday themed movie is "Holiday Affair," an unjustly neglected romantic comedy from 1949 starring Janet Leigh as a war widow who can't afford to buy her son the toy train he wants Christmas. Robert Mitchum, in a departure from his usual tough guy roles, overhears her plight in a department store and offers to purchase the train—which sets into motion a series of comical complications. Wendell Corey plays Leigh's jealous boyfriend. A charming black-and-white film for those with a sense of nostalgia or in the mood for a heartwarming Yuletide treat. Tuesday, December 11, 6:30 p.m. Punch and cookies will be served.

Twin Cities Musician Zachary Scot Johnson Performs December 3

Singer-songwriter Zachary Scot Johnson is known to captivate listeners with the lush emotional landscape with his acoustic fusion blend of blues and folk, alt-country and pop, and rock-n-roll, creating a unique musical flavor. According to one critic, "Zachary Scot Johnson has the smooth guitar lines of James Taylor, the spunk of Joni Mitchell, the vocals of Elvis Costello, and the songwriting ability of all three." He performs on keyboard, guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin, and dobro. His newly developed holiday concert will feature both familiar and lesser known Christmas gems.  Johnson has spent the last 10 years touring nationally with artists such as Grammy winners Shawn Colvin and Keb' Mo' and movie stars/musicians Kevin Costner, Rita Wilson and others. His fourth CD will be released this month, and his music is available on iTunes and Amazon. Plan to take a break from the holiday rush and treat yourself with this uplifting, relaxing hour of song on Monday, December 3, 6:30 p.m., in the large meeting room. This event is sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System and funded by money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
