C—Spotlight—FondaGrapesJoin librarian and film enthusiast Doug Swiszcz for “Fond of Fonda: A Movie Lecture Series Saluting Henry Fonda”, for the next five Wednesdays. The series begins this Wednesday, March 6, with “The Grapes of Wrath” (1940), director John Ford’s adaptation of John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning realist novel of the previous year.

The following Fonda films will be shown the remaining weeks: “The Lady Eve” (1941), “My Darling Clementine” (1946), “12 Angry Men” (1957), and “Clarence Darrow.” (1974)
