The Florence Community Library’s June movie will tie in with “Libraries Rock!”, the 2018 summer reading theme, by focusing on a legendary music figure. Come to the library Saturday, June 9 at 1:00 pm for a brief presentation, followed by a showing of the American Masters documentary, Woody Guthrie: Ain’t Got No Home.

 

This documentary chronicles Guthrie’s life and work, featuring interviews with his family and with some of the artists he influenced. Best known for the ballad, This Land Is Your Land, Guthrie blended vernacular, rural music, and populism to give voice to millions of downtrodden Americans during the Great Depression. Many of his recorded songs are archived in the Library of Congress, and his work has inspired musicians as diverse as Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, and Johnny Cash.

 

We will hold a brief presentation, followed by the film. Popcorn and water will be available free while supplies last. You are also encouraged to bring snacks and soft drinks to the show!
