Dr. Gibbs will be looking at eight of Shakespeare's plays dealing with the War of the Roses and how they led him to a meditation on monarchy reminiscent of Machiavelli's "The Prince" and other works of the late Renaissance. He will point out examples of where Shakespeare fudged the facts for dramatic purposes, and he will read specific passages from the plays for illustration. Dr. Gibbs holds a doctorate in American History and has taught history at the University of Northern Colorado, Colorado College, the University of Missouri, Rutgers University, and at Union County College. Admission to the program is free and all are welcome.

    This lighthearted tale follows three groups inhabiting isolated corners of the globe, yet all sharing the common goal of watching the 2002 World Cup finals no matter how far they must travel to do so. Germany and Brazil are about to go toe-to-toe in the biggest game on the planet, and despite the fact that they're hundreds of miles from the nearest television, these three soccer-loving groups are determined to witness every breathtaking goal. For a family of Mongolian nomads, this means traversing some of the most treacherous terrain on the planet. Of course the Tuaregs of Sahara don't have it much easier, and the Amazon Indians who long to root on their team will have navigate the so-called "Green Inferno" just to reach the nearest television. While most folks take instant access to information for granted, these three groups will travel hundreds of miles just to experience but a precious few hours of football-induced bliss.—All Movie. Admission is free and all are welcome. Sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.

    Laurence Olivier shines as King Lear, an aging king who wants to retire by abdicating to his three daughters. However, in an act of petty ego stroking, he asks them who among them loves him most. While two daughters eagerly toady to him, his youngest, honest, and truly loving daughter Cordelia, refuses play along with this foolish charade. In a rage, Lear exiles her along with his one loyal aide who dares to stick up for her. This foolhardy move works to Lear's sorrow as his two remaining daughters cruelly and gradually strip him of his status and possessions until he is rendered an insane hermit attended only by his fool. All the while, the illegitimate son of another lord is plotting his own ambitions while contributing to this tragic tale of ego and familial cruelty.
