    Featuring an all-star cast, this smoldering story from the deep-south is filled with sexual tension, bawdy humor, and powerfully clashing personalities. When a suspected barn burner (Paul Newman) drifts into a town dominated by Will Varner (Orson Welles), he is recruited to husband Varner’s spinster daughter (Joanne Woodward). Directed by Martin Ritt, this film is based on three William Faulkner stories and features Lee Remick, Angela Landsbury, Anthony Franciosa, and the first on-screen teaming of Newman and Woodward.

    Youth Services Activity Room

    Hackers: MaKey MaKey (grades 4-8) Register

    It's not what you think! A hacker is someone who enjoys building, rebuilding, and modifying software; someone who enjoys testing limits and seeing what is possible. In this program, we will be using MaKey MaKeys to turn everyday conductive items into touchpads recognizable by computers. All Northbrook Public Library cardholders who participate in the Computer Hackers class will be eligible to check out MaKey MaKey Kits from the library.

    This program is made possible by the generous donation from PotashCorp.
