As always, food will be a part of the evening…perhaps one of Mae Keaney’s legendary pies.
We hope you’ll be able to join us at this event. Click here to register or call the reference desk at 565-4181, ext. 1620.

A triumphant tale of love, family and courage…In this beautiful, lyrical novel, Linda Cardillo creates a fierce, strong-willed heroine, unafraid of hard work, solitude, or the judgment of her fellow islanders.”

SYNOPSIS

Father Adam is a Catholic priest who has been transferred from a parish in Warsaw to a parish in rural Poland. There, he heads a center for troubled teenage boys and tries to help the boys avoid the much harsher state detention system.  Father Adam struggles with loneliness.  He takes confession after confession, but has no one to turn to with his troubles, other than a sister in Toronto with whom he occasionally Skypes. Then Adam forms a special bond with one of the troubled teens, a boy named Lukasz.

 “Outstanding performances! An atmosphere of danger and violence holds

the whole film in thrall.” — Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
