And if you love talking movies, join the TPC Movie Club. Stream the monthly picks from home, then log in on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm to discuss the featured selection and other good flicks with fellow movie lovers.

The next meeting of the TPC Movie Club will take place on Tuesday, February 9th when the group will discuss “Blinded by the Light.” It’s the joyful true story of a Pakistani teen in 1980s England who, faced with economic hardship and racial prejudice, discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen, and through Bruce, the inspiration to find his own voice as a writer.

What the critics say: “Like a life-affirming rock anthem, Blinded by the Light hits familiar chords with confidence and flair, building to a conclusion that leaves audiences cheering for an encore.”

The film is rated PG-13, is free to watch for Cinemax subscribers, and can be rented or purchased through most major streaming services.

If books are your preferred escape, join the Commons Community Book Club, which meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 5pm. At the upcoming session on February 17th, the group will be discussing “The Clockmaker’s Daughter” by Kate Morton.

This bestselling novel is a mystery that unfolds across time. It’s the tale of an abandoned girl who grows up to be a thief turned artist’s muse in Victorian England, and of a long buried mystery unearthed 150 years later when a modern day archivist makes an unexpected discovery. So start reading and join the conversation!
