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.
