G-Dog ~ A Documentary Film

The Monadnock Citizen Issues Project will show the documentary film G-Dog. G-Dog is about second chances - about a charismatic visionary who launched the largest, most successful gang intervention and rehab program in the US, now an international model, Homeboy Industries. G-Dog tells the entertaining, hilarious and unlikely story of how a white Jesuit priest became an expert in gang lives. His name is Father Greg Boyle (G-Dog to his homies) and he works by a powerful idea: "Nothing stops a bullet like a job." G-Dog's unstoppable compassion has transformed the lives of thousands of Latino, Asian, and African American gang members. Free and open to all.

Funny Stories with Humorist Rebecca Rule

To salute and thank our many library volunteers this year, we are hosting the always-entertaining and hilarious Rebecca Rule. From Pittsburg to Peterborough (Peeta-burah), Becky is out and about telling and gathering stories with a strong dose of good old-fashioned yankee humor (humah). She loves to laugh and to get others laughing, too. (Note: Becky will neither confirm nor deny rumors that the susceptible sometimes laugh so hard they pee their pants and/or fall off their chairs.) If you love to laugh and have a soft spot in your heart (haht) for this rocky old place we call New England, come hear her stories of N’ampshah. Free and open to all.
