"Literary Cinema's" 3rd season opens with Kurt Vonnegut's most famous novel

For the second year in a row, "Literary Cinema" will be sponsored in part by the Bonnie Deborah Kafin Literary Fund with plans to distribute free copies of Jane Austen’s "Sense and Sensibility" for future screenings.

From the written word to the moving image, this 3rd Season of "Literary Cinema" features the most ambitious titles yet. Each presentation with discussion begins at 1PM, Saturdays in the Main Library Auditorium.

George Roy Hill directed Kurt Vonnegut's most famous novel about Billy Pilgrim, a man unstuck in time. While the original theme of Vonnegut's book "Slaughterhouse-5" was to be anti-war, the author comes to grips with Socrates's philosophy that only the dead have seen the end of war. From this premise, this wild movie finds a way to be both comic and life affirming. The R-rated film costars a very naked Valerie Perrine, Eugene Roche, Ron Leibman and Michael Sacks as Billy Pilgrim
