SUNDAY CINEMA SERIES CONTINUES
February 17: An offbeat drama about Leo Macías, a romance novelist who writes her trashy tomes under the pseudonym Amanda Gris. When her marriage begins to dissolve, Leo finds herself falling into despair, leading her to drink and lose her knack for writing her tawdry tales. Out of her turmoil, she writes a bleak novel that garners no attention. To make matters worse, Ángel, a newspaper editor with a romantic interest in Leo, hires her to write a scathing review of Amanda Gris, not realizing Gris is Leo’s nom de plume. Spanish ~ 103 minutes ~ Rated R.
TEEN NIGHT AT UMFPL

UMFPL AND WILLOW GROVE NAACP SPONSOR A DAY OF HEALTH
The Upper Moreland Free Public Library and the Willow Grove NAACP will sponsor a Day of Health on February 23 from 12-3pm in the Library’s Community Room. Featuring professional staff from the Abington Memorial Hospital, library patrons and community members can learn about heart health and diet as well as receive free blood pressure screenings. This program is free and open to the public.
DAYTIME ADULT BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP MEETING IN FEBRUARY
The Upper Moreland Free Public Library’s Daytime Adult Book Discussion Group meets from 2:30-3:45pm on the first Thursday of each month. This FREE book discussion group is held in the Library community room. Please see a reference librarian for assistance ordering a copy of the book.
The meeting for February 7 will feature discussion of White Teeth by Zadie Smith. The story of two North London families—one headed by Archie, the other by Archie's best friend, a Muslim Bengali named Samad. Plodding Archie is typical in every way until he marries Clara, a beautiful, toothless Jamaican woman half his age. Samad—devoutly Muslim, hopelessly "foreign"—weds the feisty Alsana in a prearranged union. The riotous, tortured histories of the Joneses and the Iqbals are intertwined, capturing an empire's worth of culture, history, and hope.
