Libraries 150: a celebration

September 29 – October 1, 2017

Annapolis Basin Conference Centre,

Cornwallis, Nova Scotia

Screening of the movie Maudie in the Annapolis Basin Conference Centre theatre – Saturday, September 30th, 9:00 pm

Maudie, based on a true story, is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. Maudie charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.
