WEDNESDAY NIGHT FILMS - JULY

 Wednesday Night Films     7:00 pm

July 26     Brooklyn (2016)
A young Irish woman leaves her mother and her home in search of a better life in America.  She lands in 1950's Brooklyn where she navigates  her way throuh a new world and quickly falls in love with an Italian local. When her past catches up with her she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist there.  If you loved this film the first time you saw it, you will love it even more a second time.

  2. Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.  
  3. Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read for fun. This might be a chapter book, a graphic novel, a book in verse, a picture book, or an audiobook.

When you're done, fill out the form to tell us about what you read, and you'll be entered to win a summer prize pack.  You can also tag @lplteenzone on Instagram with pictures of the books you read for bonus entries.  The titles of and thoughts about the books you read will be shared on our Tumblr for everyone to read.

The challenge is open to anyone in grades 7-12 in Lethbridge.
