Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! We hope you will join us virtually, until we can meet in person again. We’ll be discussing “Paradise/Paraiso” – a story that touches upon issues of body image, self-confidence and happiness with candor and humor.

The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch “Paradise/Paraiso” on Kanopy — one of the library’s video streaming service, and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!

You will need an Ashland library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register — you can use any of BPL’s online resources with this card).

Please register to receive the program link, which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them). Contact ashlandprograms@minlib.net with any questions.
