Richard Russo’s tribute to life in a small New England town comes to life in this amazing HBO miniseries presentation of Empire Falls!  Whether you have already read the book, or are trying to find out what all the fuss is about, join us for this community read event and help us celebrate Seekonk’s 200th anniversary!

Miles Roby and company come to life as some of today’s best actors turn in the performances of a lifetime.  Ed Harris, Paul Newman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Danielle Pannabaker, Helen Hunt, and many others take center stage in this HBO production.  The story of a man looking for happiness for himself and his teen daughter amidst a group of friends, family, and enemies in a struggling New England town is sure to resonate with anyone who has lived in or loved the Northeast.

We will provide a sampling of diner food and other surprises this evening.  If you have not read the book yet, this is your chance to see what everyone else is talking about and join the discussion!  197 minutes, not rated.

This event is free and open to the public thanks to a sponsorship from the Friends of the Seekonk Public Library.   Registration is required.  Call the library to reserve your space today at (508) 336-8230 or visit
