Saturday, February 25th at 1:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Join Brooks Appelbaum and Dennis Bell to view and discuss films that showcase Steve Martin in dramatic roles that are far different from his “wild and crazy” comic persona! We have chosen these films for their remarkable range, and for Martin’s astonishing skills, in addition to acting—dancing, singing, and “swordplay”—within them.

Shopgirl [2005]
Based on Martin’s novella of the same name, this tender story questions the meaning of love in a poignant triangle: complex young artist (Claire Danes), a wealthy and sophisticated older man (Martin), and a romantically clueless guy (Jeremy Schwartzman).

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematical genius who works as a financial consultant for criminal organizations eager to hide their dirty money. While being investigated by the Treasury Department, Wolff agrees to help an accounting clerk at a robotics firm look into fraud at her company, but the assignment will prove far more dangerous than he could have ever anticipated. Rated R.

Back By Popular Demand: Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship Workshop Series

Etsy logoDo you already make custom jewelry, decorative home items, or other handmade products for sale or gift giving? If so, this course will teach you how to start an online shop for your unique line of handcrafted items.

In partnership with Etsy, a leader in e-commerce for creative entrepreneurs, Wallingford Public Library is offering free classes to help craft makers establish an online business to sell their products to a wider market and earn extra income.

Craft Entrepreneurship classes are taught by successful online craft sellers who coach and support participants through every aspect of setting up their online shops. Using Etsy as a learning lab, teachers share best practices on topics that impact new sellers most, including time management, branding, pricing, shipping, and photography, to help them earn supplemental income through their craft business. To minimize startup costs, students will be given the opportunity to list 20 items for sale for free on Etsy.com.

This program is presented in memory of Marcia W. Fix, an avid quilter, knitter and WPL librarian, by her family.
