'Mildred Pierce'

"Mildred Pierce had gorgeous legs, a way with a skillet, and a bone-deep core of toughness. She used those attributes to survive a divorce and poverty and to claw her way out of the lower middle class. But Mildred also had two weaknesses: a yen for shiftless men, and an unreasoning devotion to a monstrous daughter."

Come in to the library and pick up a copy of the classic novel by James M. Cain. Film features an Oscar-winning performance from Joan Crawford.

There will be popcorn at the film screening.
