Join us for our March Reel Talk film selection, State Fair. This film will be shown at 10:00am in the lower level of the library.
Starring Will Rogers and Louise Dresser, this film chronicles one family's diverse expectations and adventures participating in the year's biggest event: The State Fair. Rogers plays Abel Frake, patriarch of a family whose individual members are affected by the upcoming Iowa State Fair in various fascinating ways. Abel hopes to enter his prize hog Blue Boy and win the blue ribbon. His wife Melissa (Louise Dresser) wants to enter her mincemeat in a food competition, his son Wayne (Norman Foster) wants to get even with a carnival sharpster who'd outsmarted him during the last state fair, and daughter Margery (Janet Gaynor) just wants to get out of the house for a little fun.
Guest Speaker Jan Wahl will lead a discussion after the movie. This is a free program and registration is not required. Refreshments will be served.
