 The film, based on the often-challenged novel by Harper Lee, was selected by polling library patrons asked to choose among the several movies based on historically banned and challenged books. Admission is free.
 The 1962 American drama film was directed by Robert Mulligan. The screenplay by Horton Foote was based on Lee’s 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. It stars Gregory Peck in the role of Atticus Finch and Mary Badham in the role of Scout.

Bestselling author Jess Walter – the speaker for the Idaho Humanities Council’s upcoming lecture and dinner – is the focus of the North Idaho Reads (NIR) programs for 2014.
NIR is a joint project of regional libraries. The NIR committee each year selects a book – or in this case a regional author – that the community is encouraged to read and programs are developed around the themes in the books to create a dialogue.
The Pageturners Library Book Club at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library has selected two Walter titles for its September and October discussions. “Citizen Vince” will be discussed Sept. 24, at 10:15 a.m., in the Community Room of the library with Dr. Virginia Johnson leading the discussion. “Ruby Ridge: the Truth and Tragedy of the Randy Weaver Family,” will be discussed at the Oct. 22 session, also at 10:15 a.m., with Norm Gissell leading the discussion.
Walter is the New York Times bestselling author of six novels, a new collection of stories, and a work of nonfiction, including the widely praised novels “Beautiful Ruins” (2012) and “The Financial Lives of the Poets” (2009).
A career journalist, his work has appeared in newspapers and magazines across the country, including The Washington Post, Esquire, Harpers, Playboy, and the Boston Globe.
Winner of the Edgar Allen Poe Award, and finalist for the 2006 National Book Award, Walter covered the Randy Weaver/Ruby Ridge case for the Spokesman Review, and later wrote a book about the deadly 1992 standoff between the Weaver family and federal law enforcement in northern Idaho.
His books have been translated into 28 languages.
His six novels – which also include “Over Tumbled Graves,” “Land of the Blind,” “Citizen Vince,” and “The Zero” – have won awards and accolades by some of America's best writers as well. Novelist Richard Russo called “Beautiful Ruins” an “absolute masterpiece.” The Boston Globe called the novel “a literary classic.” The Washington Post called is novel “The Zero” - a finalist for the 2006 National Book Award – “a new thriller not only with a conscience but also full of dead-on insights into our culture ... and the often surreal post-9/11 world.”
He will be the speaker at the IHC’s 11th Annual Northern Idaho Distinguished Humanities Lecture and Dinner on Thursday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m., at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.  Tickets are available by calling the IHC at 888-345-5346. General tickets are $50. Benefactor tickets are $100, offering an invitation to a pre-dinner reception with Walter in a private home and close-up seating at the dinner and lecture.
Pageturner discussions are open to any adult reader. Copies of the book will be available to check out at the Coeur d’Alene library’s Research and Information Desk in the month preceding each discussion.
Additional programs and exhibits are being planned at other libraries.

Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.

 

How old are Mudgy Moose and Millie Mouse? No one knows for sure.
What we do know is that they were born out of a love of books, active living, public art, and the community of Coeur d’Alene.
And every year since 2008 their birthday has been celebrated at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. “Mudgy & Millie” fans of all ages are invited to the party, Saturday, Sept. 13 at 11 a.m. in the Community Room, 702 E. Front Ave.
The brainchild of children’s author Susan Nipp – nationally known as the co-creator of the Wee Sing books and music – the book was illustrated by Charles Reasoner. Nipp, who is a member of the Library Foundation Board, signed over all royalties from the sale of the book and related merchandise to the foundation.
“Mudgy & Millie” follows the adventure of its moose and mouse characters as they play hide and seek along a route that leads from Tubbs Hill, to the library, downtown, around the boardwalk, to City Park and finally to Independence Point.
The author, a strong proponent of families staying active together, worked with the City of Coeur d’Alene to create the Mudgy Trail, which follows this same route.
Inspired by the bronze statues in Boston created for the book “Make Room For Ducklings,” Nipp worked with local sculptor Terry Lee for the creation of five life-size bronze statues installed along the Mudgy Trail. 
The Sept. 13 celebration will include a reading of the book by Nipp, a special appearance by Mudgy Moose and Millie Mouse, a sing-along of the “Mudgy & Millie Song,” book signing by Nipp and Lee, and, of course, birthday cake compliments of The Coeur d’Alene Resort.
There is no charge to attend the party. Copies of the book will be available to purchase as will Mudgy & Millie plush animals. All proceeds benefit the Library Foundation.

Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.
