Michigan City Parks Department, the Michiana Humane Society and the library are partnering to bring the movie screening of Marshall the Miracle Dog to the Guy Foreman Amphitheater on Monday, July 13. The film focuses on twelve-year-old Finn, who endures daily bullying at his school. His life changes the day he encounters a Labrador retriever named Marshall who is being held in deplorable conditions by an animal hoarder. The boy sees something of himself in Marshall: both are bullied, but both are brave. Finn pulls off a daring rescue, saving Marshall. But that's only the beginning. This based on true-life family film stars Matthew Settle, Shannon Elizabeth, Lauren Holly and Lucas Carroll as Finn. Lucas grew up in southwest Michigan. At 7:00 pm, he and Marshall the Miracle Dog will be on hand for photos and autographs. The author of the children's book that inspired the movie, Cynthia Willenbrock, will also sign copies of the book. The film showing will begin approximately at 8:15 pm.

A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler will be reviewed by Hilda DeMuth-Lutze. From the beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning author--now in the fiftieth year of her remarkable career--a brilliantly observed, joyful and wrenching, funny and true new novel that reveals, as only she can, the very nature of a family's life. This capacious novel takes us across three generations of the Whitshanks, their shared stories and long-held secrets, and all the unguarded and richly lived moments that combine to define who and what they are as a family. The Westchester Public Library will host this review Thursday, July 16 at 2:00 pm at the Westchester Township Historical Museum in Chesterton.
