Meet Caveboy Dave: More Scrawny Than Brawny
Saturday, November 12 — 11:00 am
His grandpa invented fire. His dad invented the wheel. How will Caveboy Dave leave his mark?
Dave Unga-Bunga has always been more scrawny than brawny. This is a major problem when your village expects you to become a meat-bringer. At age twelve, all young cave-people must stalk through the eerie mushroom forests for a prehistoric beast the village can feast on. Dave would much rather invent stuff for a better life, though—like underwear to make loincloths less itchy and cutlery to make eating less filthy. Can Dave save his group by inventing the perfect defense against a bloodthirsty pokeyhorn? Or will he MEET HIS DOOM?
The Carrion Vine: A Documentary
Monday, November 14th at 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm at the Classic Cinemas Woodstock Theatre
Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with Erane Elizabeth Scully
The documentary is based on the book The Carrion Vine, authored by Erane Elizabeth Scully, a 90 year old resident of Woodstock. It’s an incredible real life story about the author at 14 years old, and her mother, returning to their home in Switzerland after vacationing in western Poland. The day they are on the train to Warsaw, Hitler invades Poland and bombs out the train station. They flee on foot trying to escape the German army, only to be captured by the Russians and shopped to a Siberian labor camp. The story is filled with one unbelievable event after another.
Copies of The Carrion Vine are available for purchase at Read Between the Lynes.
